THE TRUMPET

ARCHIVE


"Set the trumpet to your mouth!" Hosea 8:1


 

May 30, 1999: I say unto you, My children, in this the time of the celebration of memorial in your land, I call you to establish a memorial in My land, in the land of the Spirit. And, you say, but what would this memorial be? I say, let it be a memorial that speaks of My goodness. Let it be the memorial of faith. Let it be the memorial of peace. Let it be the memorial of love. Let it be the memorial of joy. For, it saddens My heart to see My children without joy, and there are many today that have not the joy of the Spirit. They have no joy in their lives, and therefore have no strength, for My word declares it is the joy of the Lord that is your strength. It is My desire that you go out with joy, that you come in with joy, that you exercise joy in all things, and then faith can be manifested in your life. I call you to establish a memorial of faith and love in the land. Then, I call you forth to exercise worship and praise from the voice of faith that cries with a voice of expectation, with a voice of thanksgiving that receives. I desire that you exhibit true faith in the earth, for My word questions whether I will find faith upon the earth upon My return. Well, children, it can be found in you if you so desire. But, you must arise to the call and declare my goodness and establish memorial in your heart. A memorial of love and joy and peace and the fruitfulness of My kingdom so that I may perform My word and cause you to be more than conquerors, to cause you to come out of the land of the dead and out of oppression with a shout of victory upon your lips and a shout of praise, and then I shall perform My word.


RUN, ELIJAH!

May 22, 1999: As I was praising and worshipping the Lord, in the Spirit I could begin to see a cloud the size of a man's hand. I hear the sound of the abundance of rain. The Spirit of the Lord would speak to you: I have been wooing you and calling you by a new song to a higher place than you have ever been before. For, indeed these are the appointed seasons and times. Have I not said to you that you are the Elijahs of the end of the age? Therefore, I would give unto you the image of Elijah as he sees just a small cloud. If you are an Elijah as I have called to you, then you can hear the sound of the abundance of rain. I say, get up Elijah and run. Run, Elijah! Run, run, run, for the race is before you. Get up and go. The race is before you! It has been set before you. Do not allow yourself to be seated in complacency any longer. Do not allow Satan to hold you any longer. Do not allow the bondages of this world to hold you any longer. My cry is to you, get up Elijah; what are you doing in that cave? I say, come out, for there is a sound of the abundance of rain. I say, run the race as Elijah ran. Outrun the horsemen as Elijah went. Go and proclaim the message; go and tell it upon the mountains; go and tell it upon the hills; go into the streets; go into the valleys; go to the highways and byways. Be My Elijahs in this end time announcing the good news, the soon return of the Lord God who reigns in the heavenly realm. Announce His coming, for soon cometh the Lord. The day of the Lord comes, for it is at hand. There are yet many found in the valley of decision, and who will tell them if My Elijahs will not run forth and proclaim the good news that Jesus is the Lord?


A VISION OF THREE HORSES

May 16, 1999: Once again, I hear the sound of hoofbeats thundering through the spirit world. And then, I see first a black horse, then a palomino, and then a white horse. They seem to be following one another in procession, first the black, second the golden palomino and finally the white, a brilliant glowing white.

What are these horses, my Lord? These horses are not the horses of Revelation that the Apostle John saw, for those horses represent the power of the prince of the air as released upon the earth. These are not the horses that the Prophet Zechariah saw for those horses represent the power of the Most High God in the heavenly places, for these dwell between the mountains of bronze, and they go forth at My command.

Now, here is the mystery of the horses which you saw. These three horses, the black, the golden and the white, represent the power of My kingdom as revealed by the church.

The black represents the present condition of much of My church at this present time. My power is hidden (not manifest) because of the darkness within My church. My church is yet bound in darkness because of its sin nature, and My power is lost in darkness; it is obscure and is, therefore, able to be seen only here and there.

But, now comes the golden horse. Have you seen the signs of its coming? This is the season of the golden power that is being released to those who have come out from the darkness. They have washed themselves in the blood of the Lamb. They have consecrated themselves before their God, and they are hungering and thirsting for righteousness. They desire to see the manifest presence of the Holy Spirit demonstrated in such a way that it will bring honor to the Father.

This golden horse represents the golden oil anointing that now comes upon My two witnesses, the sons and daughters of fresh oil, and it shall be that they shall go forth in power; that they shall shine forth as gold purified in the Master's fire. For indeed, they have purchased gold refined in My fire, and they shall begin to demonstrate My power in this golden season of the church. The restoration of the demonstration of My power in greater measure shall take place as they speak My word in power. My judgment shall go before them as fire which devours the adversaries, and the flame of My presence will follow them.

Then, shall come the white horse, the third to come, and this horse represents the ministry of the third day, that of resurrection power. This is the power that will rest upon My bride. A bride without spot or wrinkle, a bride clothed in righteousness. Revelation 19:8, "And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints." The ministry of the power of the third horse will bring forth the restoration of all things within the church.

The world itself shall behold these sons of the Glorious One, and many shall come into the kingdom of the Most High. It shall be that My beloved, My bride, shall follow in the way of Elijah and shall be separated from the world by chariots of fire, and the third-day resurrection of My church shall take place. A glorious church shall rise to meet Me upon clouds of glory, and so shall we ever be found together living in the glorious land of My Father.

The vision fades, but I have hidden it within my heart, and now all that remains is the echo of hoofbeats echoing through my spirit man, and the Master's last words: And yet a little while and all of these things will come to pass! Amen.

 

May 15, 1999: My, my I don't know if you are stirred like I am. God is in this place wooing His people, calling to His people. As I was worshipping Him I began to see in the Spirit the latter rain coming in a greater dimension, and the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me:

The rain is falling, and I am pouring out of My Spirit on all flesh. Can you not see it? Remember that it is written that you must ask for this rain. Many of you have been distracted by the evil one, and you are not asking, you are not looking for, you are not hungering for, you are not thirsting for that which I am giving at this minute. For, there is a river that is flowing, and I say that it flows from the throne of God. Does it not come forth from the throne of God? And, even though it is only ankle deep coming out of the throne of God, before you can get into the depth of it, you must come unto the throne. But, I have provided a way by the blood of the Lamb. I have spoken to you to come boldly before My throne. Why do you, My people, not come? The way is open and the veil has been rent; I am waiting for you there. Come, come, come unto Me, and I shall give you rest.

I say unto you that the devil has come to steal your joy and your peace. To some of you he has come to steal vision from you. To some he has come to steal the prophetic word, for it has stopped flowing. Have you understood that? Where is the flow of My word, for if the Spirit of the Living God and if the river is flowing and you are being moved by the river, then there comes a flow of My prophetic word. But, Satan has come to stop that. He has offered you the desires of your heart that are found in the issues of life, and many have moved into circumstances that are bringing the power of hindering spirits against them. But, if by My finger I cast out Satan, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. For this reason I have called you here, to bring the power of My kingdom against the power of the Prince of the air, to set every captive free, for it is written that I have come to destroy the yoke of bondage, and I have come to cast down every deceiver. I have come to set every captive free. I have to break every yoke that he has put upon your neck, and then you can take my yoke which is easy. But, you must stand up on the inside. You must come alive in the Spirit. You must have a desire to be set free so that you may become a worshipper in truth, a worshipper in the Spirit, for there is My church and no other place--the Church of the First Born. In Spirit I set you free, in truth I bring you from revelation to revelation. How can it be that the depth of your spirit calls unto the depth of My kingdom, the deep things of God if you are not set free? Come, and I will set you free. Come, and I will cause the latter rain to fall upon you. There shall come a refreshing in My presence, for it is written that the times of refreshing come from the presence of the Lord. My people have taken a detour in this hour, and I say that Satan's plan is to bring discouragement. He has come to deceive and seduce you from the path of God.

I am bringing the power of the golden oil anointing upon My kingdom, so he has risen up to steal that from you which I have promised. I say, come back. Come back! Many of you have lost your first love. It has taken place in a very short time because you have lost your focus. Now you are striving again with the issues of life. Now you are striving with oppression; you are striving with unworthiness because you have been taken captive, but I have come to deliver you. My voice calls to you from heavenly places, and I say it must be that you repent and then I shall move.

The Lord says, My church is in a shambles right now. Discern the signs in the natural. Have there not been tornadoes in the land? Satan has come through the church like a tornado, and he has turned things upside down. He has come to destroy houses and to bring death upon the people. He has come like a tornado; he has come as a whirlwind. Why? Because we have sown the wind, and we are reaping the whirlwind. But, you can also see an abundance of rain in the land. You must discern the signs. The rain is falling all across the land. I am pouring out the latter rain; I am pouring out the rain of My Spirit that My people can be refreshed.

 

May 8, 1999: I have come and called My servants for such a time as this, to walk forth and to receive the inheritance of their boundaries, says the Lord. Because it is an appointed time. It is a season of miracles. I have already spoken to you and prophesied it in the congregation of the upright, and I have spoken to you for a long time now, but many are not yet listening because I have continued to speak and call things forth that you are not believing for. I say that there are appointed times and seasons. There are platforms before you that I am desiring to move into place for you. But, I have to say to you, look up for your redemption does not only draw nigh, but I am in the process of redeeming all things, and don't you know that it will be through My people and the mouths of My people and by the touch of their hands that all things shall be redeemed? The glory of God is coming upon the earth, and it shall be manifest in those who believe, in the hearts of those who worship Me--the worshippers, the believers, the true ones that have come forth to worship in spirit and in truth. Now is the time. Now is the day. Now the appointed times and the appointed seasons of your inheritance come. You have been faithful, and you have worked and you have labored in the fields and you have not yet seen the harvest that you have expected. But, I say, I have already called those things which are not as though they were, and they shall come because My word never returns void. My word always reaches out and takes the inheritance, for I have determined it; I have purposed it. It is My will that many be saved.

 

THE SOUNDING OF TRUMPETS--May 2, 1999: Listen, My children, and you shall hear the sound of trumpets throughout the land. For upon the wind of My Spirit, the sound is heard. And, if you can see it, this sound births crimson red.

Three trumpet blasts yet to come; three announcements yet to be made. Is it not written , "Blow the trumpet in Zion and sound the alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the Lord is coming, for it is at hand." (Joel 2:1)

The first trumpet to be heard shall be the trumpet of judgment. In the season that is before you, this trumpet shall sound yet three times at the appointed times. Some have said it thundered, and so it has, but I say yet three more times it shall thunder, for My sword is a sharp, two-edged sword.

My terrible sword shall first bring a separation in My kingdom, and I will call My own with the sound of the trumpet, and they shall come and stand with me. It shall then come to pass that the blood of the transgressor and the wicked shall run in the streets as crimson red.

The second trumpet to be heard shall be the trumpet of My blessing. This trumpet will announce the cup of My blessing to those who come to stand with Me. This trumpet blessing shall be given to those who heard the first trumpet and came to Me for the crimson covering of My blood, the blood of sanctification. (Joel 2:12-19)

Is it not written that I have prepared a table for My own in the presence of their enemies? This blessing is the fresh anointing that I am giving, for it is also written that I will anoint your head with oil for My cup runs over. (Psalm 23:6) This is the cup of blessing that I am bringing forth at the end of the age for My faithful servants. It shall be as it was at the wedding feast in Cana of Galilee; the best has been saved for last.

Then, it shall be that the third trumpet shall be heard. It is called the trumpet of the harvest. The first blast of the third trumpet shall send My freshly anointed servants into the harvest fields where multitudes are found in the Valley of Decision. (Joel 3:14)

My people who are called by My name will wage war in the Valley of Decision, and many will be birthed in the crimson blood of salvation. The threshing floors shall be full, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.

And then, it shall be that the last trumpet shall sound, and at this the second sounding of the third trumpet, My glorious bride shall be called forth from the harvest fields--called by the sound of the trumpet to the marriage supper of the Lamb.

Revelation 19:7-9 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready." And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!' " And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."


April 25, 1999: His name is Holy! He is jealous for you; He is zealous to see you get all He has for you. He is tired of the works of the enemy against you. The Lord is going to remove from you the northern army. He will remove from you the northern army, which represents the demon spirits that Satan has sent against the kingdom of God. The Lord is raising up a standard over the earth, and says, My people, who know My name will no longer be restricted by demon powers, for I am raising up a great and mighty army who shall walk in the strength of My power. Is it not written in My word that you are to tear down principalities and destroy the works of the evil one? For this purpose I have come, to destroy the works of the enemy. Is it not written in My word that you ought to cast out demons wherever they are found? You are a mighty army that routes the enemy, for I have given you strength and courage, and I have taught your fingers how to make war. I have put the weapons of warfare into your life. Are you now going to use them, or are you going to remain in a place of defeat? Some of you have not used the weapons that I have given you. You have not used the weapon of Spirit-lead prayer. You have not used the weapon of the blood against the enemy. You have not declared by prophetic proclamation that God is who He says He is and will do what He said He will do.

 

April 24, 1999: The Spirit of the Living God says, these are the days of new beginnings, the day of My power. This is the day of My instruments, the instruments of war that I am forming and bringing forth now. For I have decreed it and set it within my schedules. It shall now come forth, and you will see the results. I am calling those even that are younger than what you have in mind. I am calling those out of grade schools to march in the power of God. I am calling those young ones, even those in kindergarten, that the Spirit of God will come upon. The word of prophecy will come forth out of their mouths. Deliverance shall be issued forth. Even babes shall lead them and bring forth the power of the Living God and the majesty of the Creator. I will use the foolish things of this world and confound all the wisdom of the world. For, all of their programs and all of their power and all of their companies will not understand what is taking place, but you, My people, will for you are the people of the Living God who dwell within the realm of My Spirit and My word is hidden in your hearts. You shall know, and these mysteries shall be unveiled to you.

 

April 18, 1999: These are the days of expectation, the days when you ought to come to the high tower, the days when you ought to look through the eyes of the Spirit and not through natural eyes. When you look in the natural, you cannot see the times and seasons that I am moving in. You cannot see My purposes in the natural, but only if you will look through eyes of vision, if you will look through the eyes of the Spirit. The prayer that ought to be in your heart is, "Lord, enlighten the eyes of my spirit man that I might see Your purposes. Cause me, Lord God, to see what You are doing. Cause me to know what You are doing." For if you see My purposes, says the Lord, you can have those things that you desire. Even as Elisha received the double anointing, you can have those things if you can see with vision the seasons and the times and move with expectation to those places that I have for you--the places of faith, the places of renewal, the places of deliverance, the places of healing, and I say, far greater things than those. But first I have to do that work in you, and then you shall go forth and do the works that I do and greater works than these you shall do when you believe. Only believe! The gospel is simple. Only believe, and I shall move.

 

April 17, 1999: The Lord says that many curses have been unleashed against My people. He says, I want you to know why. Every time I get ready to move you into the promise, the adversary rises up against you. He has gone forth over the whole land to find people that he can use just as My eyes are searching over the land to find people that I can use. If you will come and fight for the place of victory that I have given you, he will not win, for every curse becomes causeless in My kingdom as My servants rise up to their place of inheritance and exercise their position of authority against the adversary. I say that victory will be assured and it shall come forth.

 

April 9, 1999 p.m.: I had a vision of someone locked up in a house and the venetian blinds were down and there was darkness all around. The Lord spoke that there are those of you that have closed the eyes of faith. The blinds represent faith. You have become discouraged along the way, and no longer can you see the Sonshine coming into the house of God, your body, because things have happened to hurt you and caused a sorrow of heart, a sorrow spirit, and you have gone to the window of faith and closed it up and shut yourself up in that dark place. The Lord says that you need to come out into the Sonshine of love and of life. Come out and trust God one more time. Come out and believe Him, for He is not finished with you yet. Come forth from the Valley of Baca and cause those springs to become living water. Let those tears count for something besides death. Let them bring forth life in the spirit. Open those blinds and let the Sonshine come in, and the light of God will invade you and cleanse you and purify you and you will have hope again in your heart.

I also saw an old-fashioned mail box, the kind that is open on both ends. The Lord says that some of you have been going to your "mail box." For at least two years now you have been expecting something that you need. This is a spiritual mail box, and you have been expecting an answer from God for at least two years. You have been seeking Him and going daily to that "mail box," but you have not found in spirit the answer to the desires of your heart, to those things that you have asked Him to do for you. He has not done those things for you yet. The reason that the answer has not come is that the Spirit of God has been testing your willingness to continue with Him in spite of not receiving the petition of your heart. But, the Lord says that you can expect it to come quickly now. It will come quickly to you now. Don't stop looking through the eyes of faith into that mail box because the answer is on the way; the answer is coming. God will answer that prayer and set you free from the bondages that have held you for these past two years.

The Lord wants to speak to each one of you in a clearer voice than you have heard before, but He says, you are going to have to come before My throne, seeking. You will have to come with a hearing ear and a little patience and sit in My presence. I will speak in a still, small voice to you. I will reveal things to you that will encourage you for the days ahead, and I will give you specific directions and leadings. I am now stationing My people, and I will lead them forth.

Another image that the Lord is showing me is that which Jeremiah spoke of which is broken cisterns. The Lord says that the shaking that has been going on around you has created a crack in the cistern that holds the living water--that is your heart. Some of you need that crack patched up and repaired, and you need to be refilled with the power of the Holy Spirit, for the Lord said that out of your innermost being shall flow rivers of living water. Dry is the way for some of you right now. Let the Lord mend the brokenness of your heart.

I hear the Holy Spirit saying, there are many Martha's in the house. Many distractions have come forth that have kept you out of the presence of the Lord. I hear Him saying, Martha, sit down at My feet. Sit down at My feet. Sit down at My feet.

 

April 4, 1999: I have come as the encourager. I have come to renew you in faith. I have come to touch your heart and cause it to come forth in love and the abundance of love, for I have come today to put My hand upon you and to remove from you the stain of guilt. I have come to wash away the sins that you have been fretting about, the worries that you have been enduring. I have come to birth new life in you, for this is indeed the day of resurrection power that I am bringing forth into My church, and I say to each of you personally, well done, beloved! Though your life has not been pure and it has been spotted, the perfect One has come, and the stains of guilt are this day removed that you might move forth into the hour of power and the day of My power and the resurrection power. Receive, therefore, My word of encouragement and find faith for the journey. Pick up from where you have fallen and move forth into My purposes.

 

April 2, 1999: I have come tonight in the spirit and the power of My word to declare a new day to you, to declare to you that you are My people, the living ones, the glorious ones. I have come in the strength of My word and power of My Spirit. I have put My word in you, and there has been a melody and a praise and a new song put in the hearts of some of you to declare to you that you are going forth into victory. For, when victory comes, a new song bursts forth, but you must hear the song before the victory comes. The song must come alive within you and declare that the victory is before you, the victory is here. And, God is bringing you into a new understanding of faith, a new understanding of His glory, a new understanding of the impartation of the presence of the Holy Spirit to bring you forth as sons and daughters of glory, to put the instruments of war in your hands. Hasn't My word declared that I will teach your hands how to make war? I will show you how to war against the enemy of your soul. Then, you shall go forth in the power and might of the Spirit, and then you shall overcome all temptation. Let the song of God come alive within your heart, within your spirit, because you will march to the sound of that song and no longer according to the dictates of the world and no longer according to the dictates of the devil. Faith is rising up within your heart, for I have come to give you the gift of faith. I said, I have come to give you the gift of faith! Throw off the limitations of your own faith and reach out for My gift. The Comforter has come to give faith. Faith...faith that shall bring forth the victory, faith that shall declare the word of the Lord, faith that shall cast out the devil, faith that shall bring forth the healing of the Lord God Almighty into His house, into His church. Thus declares the Spirit of the Living God.


March 21, 1999: This is a day of new beginnings. This a day of the season of miracles that are about to come upon the earth, which I have promised, to bring forth the evidence of My kingdom. I say to you that you have been given for signs and wonders. Just as I was given to a generation to demonstrate the power of God, so have you as a generation been given for signs and wonders, and the world shall see those signs and wonders take place through you and around you. I am the King, and I proclaim a season of the miraculous. I have spoken it in My word; I have declared it by the mouths of the prophets. Now I shall do it, for it is indeed the season; it is indeed the time. Behold, I will perform My word. You shall see the miraculous if you will only believe! Believe the word of God. Believe the leading of the Spirit that I have sent forth. This day you need to make room in your mind for expectation. It needs to be a season in which you forget all things that are behind you and step forward into the new. In the newness of the season that is before you, the miraculous shall be poured out. Signs and wonders will follow the witnessing and the preaching of My word. I have come to demonstrate My kingdom, not only to allow you to hear about it, but I have come looking for the hearts of the obedient that will allow themselves to be servants of demonstration. The demonstration of the power of the kingdom is at hand, the miraculous is about to burst forth, the glory of the kingdom is about to be manifested in My faith servants. Come today and listen to the words that I have spoken to you, and I say prepare your hearts, for this is that day--the third day ministry of the power of all things. The resurrection power of My kingdom is now to manifest itself in the world. I simply ask you one question, are you ready?

 

March 20, 1999: The Lord of Glory comes to speak to His people. This I say to you, My sons and daughters, this night I call you the sons and daughters of fresh oil, for it has been ordained within the times and seasons that it must be that now I call unto you as deep calling unto deep. The depth of My heart is reaching to your heart to call you forth even as I called Lazarus forth from the grave. I say unto you, the grave could not hold him, so come forth! This is a day of power, a day of glory. I have come to touch you in this hour, to bring you to the appointed place, the bring you to the appointment of destiny that I have found with My heart for each of you who have come to Me with faith upon your lips and are reaching still to Me with faith. I say unto you, receive! Receive the glory this moment, for I give unto you the glory that the Father bestowed upon Me--the glory of heaven coming down to touch the earth. Will you not touch it? If you will, you shall be caught up into My presence, for I have spoken that in the third day I will raise you up to live within My sight, that you may see Me and know Me as I really am. You will not see Me just through natural eyes, but through spiritual eyes and beyond the veil you shall see. Into the Holy of Holies you shall see. Now is the time of the third-day ministry. Now is the time to come from the outer court; now is the time to come from the holy place; now is the time to come into the Holy of Holies where the manifest presence of My glory shall overwhelm you, capture you, anoint you, and then you shall go forth and minister in the life and resurrection that is within Me. I say, go forth! Go forth! My words shall not fall to the ground. I have birthed something in you through the travail of the Spirit; I have given unto you the gift of faith, the gift of life, the gift of joy. The gift of My presence I give you. Have you captured it? Have you taken it? I call you forth out of the natural into the Spirit. I call you out of the grave of yesterday into the light that I am giving today. I call you forth into tomorrow. Can you perceive it? Can you see it? If you can, then you shall receive.

 

March 7, 1999: The Lord says, I am indeed bringing you into the Third Day Ministry, and it will be earmarked by the resurrection power of My kingdom. For not only have I spoken it in My word, but it has been prophesied to you and preached to you. It exists within the realm of your spirit man now, for in your spirit man abides eternal life. Out of that eternal life shall flow forth the power of the resurrection, the power of glory that I have desired to bring My people into for such a long time. I say unto you that the angels themselves desire to see what I am about to do. The heroes of faith that you have read about in My word desire to see what you will do with the third day anointing and the third day power. For, there comes forth a company of redeemed in the manifest presence of My power, and I say unto you that the dead shall arise. I say to you that the blind shall see. I say unto you that the lame shall walk. I say unto you the prison house doors shall be opened, for the gates of hell shall not prevail against My church! For three days and three nights I was in the belly of hell itself stripping Satan of his authority, taking the keys of death, hell and the grave away from him, and I have defeated him there. Now you shall go forth and complete the work that I have begun by first defeating him in your life and then in the lives of others, for this is the third day power of My ministry that I am bringing forth. So, I say unto you, rise up by the Spirit. Ascend Zion's hill. Come unto Me with faith and expectation, for I will anoint you with the oil of gladness and the oil of joy. As I anoint you, My resurrection power shall flow through you and you will come down from that mountain in the power of the third day ministry and the resurrection power that comes forth from Me. I give it to you, says the Lord God Almighty, for it is within My purpose and it is within My timing. Now comes the third day power of resurrection. Come into it!

 

March 5, 1999: I am bringing to you, My church, an eleventh hour payday for those of you who have been faithful to Me, for those of you that have remained steadfast, for those of you who have persevered without doubting and without dragging My name through the dust of this world. To those of you I declare tonight that in the midst of this purging, in the midst of this sifting I am bringing to you an eleventh hour payday even now. You need to reach up and receive it even now in this moment, for My rewards are coming forth in this time, for this is a visitation of My power. I am releasing My healing power, I am releasing revelation knowledge, and I am releasing the power of deliverance. I am releasing the new vision that I am bringing forth into the hearts of My people, that is that I am among you walking with you, ordaining the times and the seasons in which you live. Can you not see? Can you not see through the veil of darkness? Can you not see by the prophetic words that have come even in this last year that I am preparing a people to walk in the glory of My presence? I have spoken to you and said that I am sifting you, and I am taking out of you everything that is wrong. But, some of you have refused to get your eyes upon Me, and you still look at the world and you still desire the things of the world, and you desire to be attractive to yourself in this world, and I say there is only one way and that is to get your eyes upon Me, for I am the Lord God Almighty, and in Me exists all that you need. In Me there is life, and an abundance of that life exists in Me. Come and receive that life, for that life endures forever.


 

February 28, 1999: The Lord God Almighty speaks to His servants today saying, there are some of you who have despaired in the process of winnowing and the process of sifting. But, I come to you today to speak words of encouragement to you, for by the Word of the Lord, you have heard My process and you have heard My purpose. Because you have received the revelation of purpose, then it just remains for you to say, "Yes Lord, here I am. Clean my hands up, Lord God, and wash my heart." Some of you have been striving and striving to enter My presence, and many are even giving up in this hour because they seem to have not made it into the Holy Place. But, I say to you today, the veil has been rent and My word promises you that you may come. Come, come, come; I call to you to come boldly before the throne with your requests. These are the days of preparation, and I will reveal Myself to you. It is My purpose to prepare you to contain the fulness of anointing, the fulness of the seven spirits of the Living God that cascades over the balconies of heaven to find the way into your heart that you might be changed forever, that you might receive the impartation of My Spirit, and that you might be strengthened by My Holy Spirit even in your spirit man and come to the high place. I say, the threshing floor is not the highest place. Oh, it is a high place where My purposes prevail within you, but there is yet another place. It is called Zion's glorious mountain. Come up to Zion. Come up to the Holy Place. Come into My presence, for I shall anoint you with the oil of gladness, and I shall remove from you the burden of bondage that rests upon you, and I shall give you hope for the days that are ahead of you. I am bringing you forth out of the valley of despair, out of that hard place into the possession of My peace. This is My purpose, and I say again, come! Come to Me, for I care for you, and I love you!

ZIKLAG

February 24, 1999: This morning as I read a prayer request from a dear brother in Christ concerning the spiritual attack that He is under, the Holy spirit spoke to me the word Ziklag. I wrote this brother what the Lord spoke to me, and then the Holy Spirit said: He is not the only one, for there are many in My church who now find themselves at Ziklag. In the process of sifting, Satan is relentlessly attacking My people to cause them to despair of life itself and to give up. Tell My people, which are called by My name, not to give up. Tell them not to bow down to their circumstances. Tell them that I have allowed these circumstances of adversity to come and test their faith. I am giving them an opportunity to move to higher ground where they will no more give in to adversity. Tell them they are being prepared as David was, to rule in My kingdom. Tell them to do what David did at Ziklag.

1 Samuel 30 tells the story of David at Ziklag. David and his men returned to their dwelling place at Ziklag to find the city burned with fire and their families taken captive and their provisions gone. At this point, David's men were greatly distressed. David had no one to help him, but verse 6 tells us that David strengthened himself in the Lord. Do you see it, beloved? This is God's purpose for the test.

Go to Him; lift up the feeble hands and heart to the Lord your God, and He will strengthen you.

Verse 8 tells us that David then inquired of the Lord. You are not out of options. Go, and inquire of the Lord, who will give direction. The Lord told David, "Pursue for you shall surely overtake them (your enemy, Satan) and without fail recover all." So David went (after the enemy). He pursued them even when he was weary (verse 10), and he attacked them from twilight until evening of the next day (verse 17), and David recovered ALL (verse 19) and more than he had before (verse 20).

Do not give up, My people, for it is written that you are to be My kings even as David was a king. As a king must learn to rely upon Me alone for his strength and wisdom, I am now preparing you to rule and reign with Me in the authority of My glory. For this reason Satan is frantic, and he has unleashed his legions against the sons of My glory. Also for this reason, you must now rise up and strengthen yourself in My presence. Discouragement will destroy your faith if you don't encourage yourself in Me, in My word, and by My Spirit. Come unto Me, call upon My name. I will not forsake you. Do not forget that greater is My power in you than the power of the prince of this world who is against you. Remember, My people, the battle belongs to the Lord, and victory is assured. I say pursue!

 

February 14, 1999: Do you hear the sound of silence, My beloved? Does it not mean something? Peace be still! For, there are many voices in the land seeking to be heard. These are clanging cymbals producing many words which say nothing, for they desire to be heard for their much speaking. But, this is not the way of love. Consider for a moment the way of love before the words, I love you, are spoken. The sounds of silence are heard. It is within the sound of silence that a loving glance is given, a gentle smile, the touching of hands. You will recognize this, My beloved, as the sound of My love being wrapped around you, for I have come to woo My bride with a silent love that comes first with the touch of My hand and then a whispered word that speaks to the spirit within you.

Great is the sound of confusion in the land, and many are the voices that disrupt the golden strands of My silence. This is so because most are not comfortable with silence. But, silence is the place of beginning, and the work that I am about to do demands a moment of silence. Consider My silence before Pilate. Consider the few words spoken from the cross and the silence within the tomb of My burial. Was this not the beginning of the resurrection? Is it not written that the Spirit Himself makes intercession according to the will of God for the saints with groanings (of silence) which cannot be uttered. (Romans 8:26-27)

Do you remember that it was in the silence of My death that the earth trembled and the veil in the temple was rent and the way into the Holy place was prepared? Is it not so that Solomon's temple was built in silence so that the works of man were not heard? I am now building My temple in the silence of man's work. What is it you now hear on My threshing floor? It is the sound of the wind of My winnowing, the sound of the sifting that is taking place, for this is taking place. This is the place of beginnings, the place in which you stand in silence before the Master.

Now hear what the Spirit says to the church: It is written that Elijah must come before the dreadful day of the Lord. A day of judgment is coming. Have you not read of the silence in heaven before the sounding of the seven trumpets? My word is given to form patterns that reveal the mysteries of the kingdom. You have heard of the years of silence between Malachi's proclamation and John's voice breaking the silence, "Behold the Lamb of God."

Once again I am bringing forth My Elijahs, so it must be that you again consider the pattern because you are My Elijahs you too must enter into the place of silence, the inner chamber (the cave).

1 Kings 19:11 Then He said, "Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD." And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake;
1 Kings 19:12 and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.
1 Kings 19:13 So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, "What are you doing here, Elijah?"

It is in the silence of My presence that I speak and in this place the still small voice with which I speak will be amplified by the silence, and the voice of many waters shall break forth into your spirit. Then, you shall arise from your place and the silence will be broken, and My witnesses shall again prepare the way of My return.

For this reason, I say peace be still, My beloved! Listen not to the clanging of the cymbals, for very soon My Elijahs, those being prepared in silence, shall come forth, and My words shall be in their mouths, and they shall silence the many voices. I shall call My church forth, and they shall hear My voice, and no other will they follow.

 

February 7, 1999: I come to you today as the Captain of the Host, for I am the Leader of the army, and I am preparing a great army. It is My purpose in this time to prepare you to prepare the way. I said, it is My purpose to prepare you, so that you can prepare the way for My return. For this purpose I have come, to destroy the works of the enemy, and you are My Gideons, you are My Elijahs, you are My Davids; you are that glorious army that I am raising up in this time, and you shall go forth in the power of My might. The scripture prophesies and declares that there has never been a generation like you will be, nor will there ever be one after. There will never be another like I am forming now. This is My army, this is My time, this is My process, and this is My purpose--to bring you into the kingdom that I have prepared for you since the foundations of the earth that you might come forth and live in the glory of My kingdom and be prepared by the glory as I bring you through the time of sifting, the preparation time. Again, for this purpose I have come, to destroy the works of the enemy, and you shall be My battle axes, says the Lord God Almighty.


January 31, 1999: The Spirit of the Lord speaks to you, have I not spoken to you and said that the Lord Jesus Christ has given to you a kingdom? And in that kingdom there is a table. The table has been prepared for you now that you might come and dine now on the Word, that you might come and dine now in relationship with the Lord of Glory that He may impart to you His presence. As He imparts to you His presence, His power shall follow, for surely He gives you the glory of His Spirit. I come to invite you forth this day to receive vision. Is it not written that those who have not vision in My kingdom shall perish? It is because they have not seen My purposes. But, I have walked among you today, and I have imparted vision. I have not left you with just vision, I have explained to you the process, and I have given to you the hope of purpose. It shall be such in My kingdom, for I have come to put Myself into you in a greater dimension of power. I have come to you today as the rain, the latter rain and the former rain together to give unto you the power of the Spirit, and to bring you to life in a new way. It is time, indeed, for the sons of fresh oil to come forth and bring the manifestation of My glory. I am looking for two witnesses. I say, I am looking for two witnesses. Is it not written, and has it not been spoken in the days of old that I am looking for those who will worship in spirit and in truth? The truth of My word and the power of My Spirit within you will release to you the new dimension of My kingdom, the kingdom that all of the earth waits for. There is a groaning, and the earth itself groans and waits for the manifestation of the sons of glory. That is My purpose, to bring you forth in the power of My kingdom in a new dimension. This I say today that you might be encouraged and move forward with all of your strength and all of your power.

 

January 31, 1999: The Lord speaks a personal word to some of you here: You have lost vision. You have lost the vision of the resurrection Christ. Don't you remember when I came and spoke to Martha and to Mary? I said, I AM that resurrection. Turn your focus back on Me, and the resurrection power of life will flow forth into your innermost being. There shall be a regeneration of life, a renewal of life, a renewal of purpose. For those of you who look to the world for your vision have lost the power of My kingdom. Even when I feed you fresh manna, it does nothing for you because it has no place to go. There is no witness within you, the Spirit of the Living God, that My word must make contact with, and it must be that you, in this day, take My word and mix it with faith. When you mix it with faith again, you have the witness of My kingdom within, the power of My kingdom within, and I shall bring you forth into the new light, into the new day of My purposes. I shall bring you forth, for I have designed within you the spirit of victory, and You shall overcome in My power if you will be renewed in vision, says the Lord God Almighty.

 

January 29, 1999: Oh, My little children, have you sensed the change in the atmosphere tonight? I said, have you sensed the change in the presence of My coming upon you tonight? I come upon you now, and I have come to you to remind you of the memorial of My name! For in that name demons flee; in that name sickness goes; in that name healing flows; in that name all needs are met. For, I have spoken in My word that I AM that I AM, and I AM always with you, always there to go with you, always there to watch over you, always there to deliver you, always there to bring you up higher, always there to bring you out into a greater dimension of the love of My kingdom and the peace in My kingdom and the joy in My kingdom. I AM the Lord God Almighty. I AM the LORD! I AM sovereign in dominion and sovereign in dimension, and I move you through times and seasons. I move you through the atmosphere of spiritual recognition. This night I bring you forth to a new level, a plateau that is higher than the one that you have come from if you have, by faith, ascended Zion's glorious hill. I say unto you that there are new streams of living water flowing--new streams that come forth from the throne of God--new streams of the measures of My Spirit that you have not yet partaken of and the measures that you have not yet tasted. I say they are flowing in a new dimension, and they are flowing through the name of My beloved Son, and they are coming to you, and they are falling upon. Let Me tell you what it is called. Is it not called the latter rain? Is it not the latter rain? Is it not coming because you have asked for it? Is it not coming because you have desired it? I say, it comes to wash you in this time of sifting. It comes to release you into a new dimension of My power, for the rain is coming. It is coming from My own hand; it is coming from My kingdom, and it is invading the natural time that you live in. The Spirit of the Lord says, receive the rain and be renewed. Receive the rain and be refreshed. Receive the rain and be delivered. Receive the rain and be healed, for it is My desire to wash you with the washing of the water of regeneration that now comes upon you by My Spirit. My children, I say unto you, be washed! Be free! Be set at liberty!

 

January 24, 1999: God says, there is a change in the season; there is a change in the atmosphere. In this time of sifting, you have already gotten your eyes on what you think I am doing. You think My focus is just on the little things in your lives that are wrong; you think My focus is just on the little attitudes that are wrong. You think that My focus is on those circumstances you are in, but I have something much greater for you and something far, far bigger than you could even imagine. I am going to take some things away from you that maybe you even desire; I am going to withhold some prophetic words that you may be seeking from your Elijah's, but I have a purpose for it, and I have a reason for it. That reason is to cause you to come unto Me, to cause you to seek after Me, to cause you to hunger after Me, and to cause you to thirst after Me! And, oh yes, it may upset some of you, My children. Nevertheless, I say, so be it, for those whom I love I chasten. Those whom I love, I bring correction to. Even though you may not understand the methods of My correction, when the final work is done, you can say, He knew what He was doing!

 

 

 

January 22, 1999: Can you hear the sound? You say, what sound? I say, the sound of groaning. Can you hear the sound of the groaning? I say, the groaning of all of nature. I say, the groaning of all of the universe. I say, the groaning of your spirit. There is a groaning of your soul, for I am working within you, and I am bringing forth something that is brand new. I am bringing forth My children in the power of My Spirit in unprecedented ways. I have already promised faith explosions, and so that word has come upon you and for some of you it has gotten down into your spirit. There is a groaning, and you might ask, what is the sound of the groaning? Is it not the sound of the birthing of the work that I am about to do? Is it not the sound of the birthing of the power of My Spirit? Is it not the sound of the birthing of the season of the golden oil and the power that is coming upon this land and the power that shall surely come through My servants, saith the Lord? Is there not a groaning down inside? If there is a groaning within you, there is a desire to birth that which I am doing into the land, into the counties, and into the cities in which you live that the day of salvation would spring forth and that the darkness of the night would be turned into the brightness of the day. Great and mighty shall be the birthing, for I am doing a new thing. Come forth, My men; come forth, My daughters into the newness of that day, for indeed there is a birthing process coming forth in this year of 1999.

 

January 17, 1999: Have you understood the times and seasons in which I have worked? You have known if you have been in the process of that work that I've been doing by the Spirit. I have brought you through seasons, and I have brought you through times of refreshing, and this great and mighty move of My Spirit began with the outpouring of My joy upon My people, and if you will go back and remember, I then spoke to you that it was time to offer up your Isaac (laughter). I was telling you that the greatest portion of that work had come to pass, it had come to fruition, and it was time to move on into the work of My Spirit. And, what was the work that followed that? Was it not the outpouring of My prophetic word? Hasn't My word come forth with power? Haven't I used those that you have looked to as your Elijahs to bring forth a word for you in due season? But, I say that the times and the seasons are changing again. Now, I say, there comes a time for you to leave your Elijahs, for I desire to speak to and through each one of you because you are a prophetic people, and I am raising up a company of prophets--not just a few here and there! So, I say today, that you should begin to seek with a hunger and thirsting the voice of My Spirit within so that it can manifest in your life. Then, your Elijahs will come and bring forth a word of confirmation to that which I have already spoken. Many of you are still looking to the prophet to give you direction when I, Myself, desire to speak to you and lead you. I desire to bring you into the fullness of My kingdom and the fullness of My Spirit where you live in the abundance and the overflow of the spiritual life that is within you, so that you would hear My voice in your very own ears and speak My words from your very own lips. That is the season of transformation that I am now bringing you through. I am purging you and sifting you to prepare you for even that day, for then I will send each of you out as John in the spirit of Elijah to prepare the way for My return, for I say My return is not far off in the distance as many would assume. It is close, even at the very door. Seek Me now in this season. Be ready to offer up your Elijah and go on under the mantle of authority and anointing that I will give you. Behold, the day of the Lord cometh.

 

January 10, 1999: I come to you today as the Father of lights, the illuminating power of this world, and I call unto you My children. I call you today the sons and the daughters of faith. I say get ready! I am about to bring a faith explosion that will completely transform your lives. You will never again be able to walk in the dullness nor in the deadness of the paths that you have found yourselves on in the present time and in times past. I say, I am bringing a new day. I will give you today a sign in My word. This I will ask you--I say, how old was Abraham when he received the covenant of My promise? Was he not 99? Is this not the year 1999? Is he not called the father of faith? Is it not true that the word declares that it is by faith that he was justified and by faith that he received my goodness and by faith the he walked with Me? By faith he received the promises even though he did not understand them when I spoke to him to look to the skies and see the multitude of the lights that were shining that were symbolic of his children. I say, it is not only a year of faith, for I am transforming My bride. If you would read on in that very same passage, you will find that it was also the year that I brought destruction to Sodom and Gomorrah, and so it shall be in My people's land again, for I am coming to birth a faith in the land, a people of faith, children of faith, but also you will rise up in the Spirit and the power of My word, and you shall bring forth prophetic proclamation against the Sodoms and Gomorrahs of this world, against the devil's kingdom, and I say surely it shall fall for the kingdoms of this world belong to Me, and I am coming to take it back. Will you not arise in this year even as Abraham arose in his old age? He was not dead was he? It seemed as though he was dead, but when I touched him, life sprung forth and the child of happiness came forth. I manifested Myself in his life from that moment on. I say today, write this down, this is the day of the reconfirming of a covenant of faith with My obedient children, and it shall be so. Not one word shall fall to the ground. Go forth in the power and might that I have given to you this day.

 

January 1, 1999: The Spirit of the Lord says , I am coming with power and might. From My hand shall come forth flashing rays, and they will bring either destruction or they will bring healing. But, I am coming as the God of vindication to My people. I say, I will vindicate you. If you have come to Me with a desire to live in obedience. I will vindicate you, and your enemies will know that I have walked with you and have been for you, for I shall no longer allow them to bring sorrow of heart to you. The world itself will know who is Mine, and even as Aaron's rod budded, I shall bring forth a vindication upon My people, and there shall rest upon them a cloud by day and a fire by night, and I shall say, these are Mine. Touch not those who are My anointed, for they are the apple of My eye, and I will no longer tolerate words of condemnation against them, words of accusation against them. For I am coming to vindicate them and set them in a holy place where all will know that they feed at my table, and they eat My food, and they speak My words. I shall not cast them down any more, says the Lord God. When I vindicate them, they shall know that the prophets of Mine have walked among them, and they have spoken My words, and they have brought My truth, and they have spoken about Me with love. But you, oh world and daughter of Babylon, that have condemned them and come against them with the voice of accusation, I say your words shall melt in your mouth, and the sorrow of heart shall come upon you. You shall know My wrath.

 


December 28, 1998: Oh, Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and of the abominations of the earth! You have made yourself a queen to sit in heavenly places, and from your place you rule over the kingdoms of this world.

In your wickedness you rule, but it is written, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ and He shall reign forever and ever."

Babylon, you are no longer a mystery to My servants, the prophets, for they have identified you as the spirit of the world which is the spirit of Antichrist working in this present worldly system. The spirit of the Antichrist is the spirit of Babylon, the spirit of wickedness, the spirit of lawlessness, which is in rebellion to My divine rule.

My people, have you heard this decree? "Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication (spiritual harlotry)." I have been calling My people out of Babylon and into the safe habitations of My kingdom, for My wrath is soon to be poured out upon the mother of harlotry.

Have you discerned the signs, My people? Do not allow them to go by unnoticed, for you are called to be watchmen. Now, I will speak plainly to you. The attacks upon Iraq (physical location of modern-day Babylon) are but a sign of the destruction that is to come upon the Babylonian systems of this world. It was a sign in the natural to forewarn My people of that which is to come.

Again, I say, come out of her, for she has become a habitation of demons. Twice now, I have given you this sign in the earth, and it is enough, saith the Lord of hosts.

 

December 20. 1998: I come to you, My children, for I have an announcement to make. There is to be the birth of a new manchild, a glorious manchild. One that will follow Me and preach as I preached, and walk as I walked, and cast out demons as I cast out demons, and lay hands on the sick as I laid hands on the sick. And, they shall rise and be healed, for I am now coming to live in you. Behold, I am indeed the first manchild, but now I come to you in a new dimension of time, a dimension of glory, and I call you forth to walk in the power that I walked in; to walk in the anointing that I walked in; to walk in the dominion that I walked in, and to do the works that I came to do upon this earth. I now call you forth. Some of you have glimpsed just an open window of the destiny that lies before you, but I say to you, in this coming year you shall come through that opening into a new place. Behold, a new manchild comes forth to live in power, to rule in glory. I extend to you today the staff of life, but not only the staff of life, for that you have understood. But, now I extend to you the rod of iron, the rod of My authority, the rod of My power, the rod of the governing powers of My kingdom. I come to you in the dimension and the dominion of My Spirit today to spark a new life within you. Behold it comes this day and will carry you through the trials which are before you. It will carry you forth in the power that I, Myself, walked in. For this is indeed that season and time. I say unto you, look up, for not only does your redemption draw nigh, but watch for the glory that is to come upon you. Pray that it would come to you quickly, receive it as a gift, for it has been given freely as the gift of My kingdom for those who have been faithful to walk with Me in this the end of the age. Open your hearts, My children, to receive fully the gift not only of salvation but that of glory and power and divine rule. I send it forth on the wind of My Spirit to touch your spirit. I say, receive!

 

December 18, 1998: THE HORSEMEN ARE COMING! Today, as I sit before the Lord of Hosts, I am aware of the coming storm. The wind is blowing, and upon the wind comes the sound of His voice. Over and over again these words keep coming, "The horsemen are coming. One has already come, but there are three yet to come."

In the distance, I hear the sound of hoof beats thundering across the land. Dark and ominous clouds of death are gathering as though the sun is clothed with sackcloth. The moon has become red like blood, and through the sound of thunder comes the Master's voice.

America, America, land of the free and the brave, have you heard this sound? Are you ready for the judgment to come? For, you would say to Me, Lord, Lord, we have endured the enemy, and we have won. But, I say, you have not yet run with these three horsemen which come. You have only run with the footmen, and they have wearied you. Then, how will you contend with horses? And if in this land of peace, in which you have trusted, they wearied you, then what will you do with the flood of destruction that comes?

Is it not written that you should pray that your flight may not be in the winter? And, have I not told you to find yourselves in safe habitations by the winter for tribulations are coming? You have heard it said that this is the time of My justice, and it is so, for the horsemen come!

Now hear what the Spirit says. The white horse has been running to and fro across your land loosing the fiery darts of Antichrist, and your land has become defiled. This horse was loosed when you, a nation called one nation under God, took the voice of prayer from the mouths of My children. I have given you time to repent, but you would not. Not only did you take My voice from My children, but then you began to offer their blood to the rider of the white horse, and you took their lives in the womb, and their blood cries out from the ground.

How long, O Lord, holy and true, until you judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?

And, this is My answer to My children. Now come the three horses, the red horse comes to take peace from the earth, and war shall come. Then comes the black horse, and famine will come to the land of plenty. Then comes the pale horse and death shall cover the land.

The winter is a time of preparation, a time for the birthing of faith, a pure faith, a strong faith, a holy faith. To those who are Mine I say, fear not. Though the enemy has been loosed, I have written a decree for the provision of My own. To those who are called by My name the oil and wine will be given, for it has been written, "Do not harm the oil and wine."

As the Master's voice fades, I once again am aware of the sound of hooves...thundering through the spirit world, and again I hear, "The horsemen are coming." The still small voice of the Spirit calls, "Come now and hide yourself until the indignation passes you by. Come and be found in Me."

 

December 13, 1998: The season of sifting is before you, but if you will come forth in the place of faith as I am giving you opportunity, it will be a much easier walk. If you come forth in faith, I will join my faith with you, and the gift of faith will be given to the hearts of the righteous, and then the power of My kingdom will be loosed and demonstrated in your life, and the season of sifting will become a season of power and not defeat. The Spirit of the Lord says, I have opened a door before you. This is a new door to many of you that will bring you forth into the destiny that I have laid before you, a door that will give you now the opportunity to turn your minds upon Me, your hearts upon Me where every fear is laid aside, where every thought of disobedience has no place, and where you come with a new level of commitment, where you come now in a position of faith knowing in Whom you have believed and you know that God is going to deliver you and bring you forth into the fullness of His kingdom.

 

December 12, 1998: It is now that time, the winter season is just before us, and it is now time for the winter winnowing to begin; it is time for the refining of My people. My precious ones have come into the safe habitations of My kingdom. The time has come for the righteous to shine forth in the glory of My Father's kingdom. Many have not had ears to hear, and they will now be gathered out of My kingdom. They are those who have refused to listen. They have stopped up their ears, and they violate the word of My covenant.

"And such as violate the covenant he shall pervert and seduce with flatteries, but the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits for God. And they who are wise and understanding among the people shall instruct many and make them understand, though some of them and their followers shall fall by the sword and flame, by captivity and plunder, for many days. Now when they fall, they shall receive a little help. Many shall join themselves to them with flatteries and hypocrisies. And some of those who are wise, prudent and understanding shall be weakened and fall, thus then, the insincere among the people will lose courage and become deserters. It will be a test to refine, to purify and to make those among God's people white, even to the time of the end, because it is yet for the time God appointed." Daniel 11:32-35 AMP

 

December 6, 1998: The Spirit of the Lord began to speak to me about a disease that some of you have that is common to Christianity called nearsightedness. You are not eternally focused. Your perspective is not eternal; your focus is on you and your circumstances and your desires. The Lord said tell them it is not about them; it is about Me! The whole of this kingdom is not about you; it is about Me and what I am doing in it. Those that are Mine have eternal perspective and are not hindered by the walk in this life; they are not concerned about the problems in this life; they are not concerned about their circumstances. They are concerned about My kingdom and being found in it and being one with Me and doing My perfect will as My Son did. It is time to get some new glasses--a change in vision.

 

December 4, 1998: Who is wise among you? Who has seen the signs that I have brought forth this evening? Is there not a newborn babe among you tonight? Have I not spoken to you that I would send signs forth in the earth that would tell you that which is coming? I send you forth a sign tonight which speaks forth this message--out of the mouths of babes perfect praise comes forth. Out of the mouths of babes praise is perfected. I cry to you this night by My Spirit, and I ask you a question. I say, where are the heralds that will take this message and run to the four corners of the earth? Where are messengers that will come forth and stand in the midst of the congregation and say unto My people, the Lord of glory has come? He has brought forth a new sound unto the earth, a sound that is bringing His people up higher. He is establishing a place within His people of perfect praise. The angels themselves are gathered around with you. They are in your midst, and they are worshipping Me. Have you not sensed the presence of angelic beings and the radiance of My glory coming upon you? This is the season for perfect praise. My power cannot rest upon a people that have not learned how to worship Me and praise Me. Think for a moment and examine the sign that I have given you. Does a baby have inhibitions? Doesn't he cry when he needs to cry out to the parent for comfort? Doesn't he cry out to the parent for love? Doesn't he cry out to the parent for a touch? Doesn't he cry out to the parent for feeding? I would have you become like little children, My people. Cry out to Me when you need nourishment. Cry out to Me when you need comfort. Cry out to Me for surely I shall come unto you and I shall sustain you. The nourishment of My kingdom shall flow forth into your life, for I am indeed the Lord of glory. I am the Father of life. There is life in Me. I desire to bring that life forth into you. Will you not open your mouth as a babe and cry? Cry as a babe cries out for a tender touch. Cry as a babe cries out for reassurance. I say, this is My desire. I am bringing you to a new level, new heights. I am bringing you to the top of Mount Zion, up to the place where the heavenly harps will join with your music and the heavenly voices will manifest themselves in the congregation, for surely now I am joining together both natural and spiritual so that all the world will see that I am indeed the Master, the King. Behold, your King walks among you tonight, reaching out to touch you, deliver you and heal you. Behold, the Lamb of God who has taken away the sins of the world. Behold, the Lamb of God that has come to renew you. Behold the Lamb of God that has come to bestow His touch of love upon you. Behold Him, for surely He walks among you.

 

November 28, 1998: 1999 A PROPHETIC WORD--The Year of God's Justice: Romans11:22 "Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off." The Lord is warning us to be found in safe habitations because Satan is going to launch an intensive attack against the Body of Christ in order to keep us out of the increase of prophetic anointing that is going to be released by the Holy Spirit.

This attack of Satan will be allowed by the Lord for the purpose of sifting (testing) the hearts of those who call themselves Christians. This testing will cause many to fall away in the winter season that is before us. Thus, the warnings to be found in safe habitations.

Those that make their houses secure against the storms will survive and also receive the golden oil anointing of the Sons of Glory that is to be brought forth more fully in the spring.

"As it was unto Peter, it will also be unto My sons and daughters of this golden age of My church. Because Peter was found within the safe habitation of My heart, he survived the sifting and went on to minister under the anointing of My Spirit. Not only did I pray for Peter, but I have prayed for all who are found within My heart, those of you who have continued with Me shall now be called the sons of My glory--the sons of fresh oil, the golden oil."

Luke 22:31-32 And the Lord said, "Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren."

Peter survived the sifting, and then on the Day of Pentecost there came the wind and fire of the Holy Spirit, and Peter stood up, under the anointing, and preached in power.

This testing or sifting will be accomplished by three unclean spirits. Revelation 16:13, "And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon." These spirits will come to test the loyalty of the hearts of those who call themselves Christians. Satan's intention is to paralyze the Body of Christ; to keep them from receiving the fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit, that which the Holy Spirit has been referring to as "the golden oil."

This was his plan in Peter's day, and it will be the same at this time. "Do not disqualify yourselves; remain loyal to Me, and do not allow yourselves to accuse Me of wrong doing. These three spirits will try to paralyze My body through division, isolation, and disqualification (through offense and accusation.)

These three spirits are the same ones that sifted Peter. They are:
1. The spirit of the antichrist which will bring an attack against the spirit of man, producing an anguish of spirit--heart-felt pain and condemnation. The scriptures say that Peter wept bitterly (a heart-felt sorrow of intense pain as a result of hopelessness, failure and condemnation).

2. The spirit of fear which caused Peter to deny the Lord three times. Fear has torment and brings panic and anxiety which produces unbelief. Whatever is not of faith is sin. A lack of faith can cause you to betray Christ and depend upon some other means of support.

3. The spirit of infirmity which can bring sickness to wear you down, or it may manifest as weakness, inability, or a lack of desire, producing a give-up mentality. Even after the resurrection this spirit caused Peter to return to a worldly place of comfort, and he returned to fishing (John chapter 21). Jesus then came with a rebuke, "Simon, son of Jonah (Peter's worldly name), do you love Me more than these (fish)?"

The power of these three spirits was completely broken on the Day of Pentecost when Peter was baptized in the Holy Ghost.

The Spirit of the Lord says, "Do not give up, My beloved. If you love Me, then trust Me, for there is coming yet another outpouring, and the former and latter rain together will bring forth the golden oil anointing of authority and power. Remember now My words to Peter--Luke 22:32 "But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren." My servant, Peter, came through his trial, and so will you. Now listen to the words of My servant, for he speaks from experience. 1 Peter 1:6-7, "In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ."
1 Peter4:12-14, "Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you, but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified."

 

November 22, 1998: This word I speak to you today, says the Lord God. I have come in the delivering power of My kingdom. I have come to deliver you from the prince of darkness; I have come to deliver you from the rule of a principality and from the dominions of the rulers of darkness. I have come as the Lord of glory to dispense My glory upon you, to touch you with My glory, to let the anointing flow through you, to cause you to come up into victory. Would you come forth in the name of Jesus? Would you not come out of that darkness? Would you not believe now and release your faith unto Me? For, surely I shall perform My word. The evil one has held My people long enough under his sway and his power. But, I say to you, I declare a spiritual deliverance. I declare a spiritual Jubilee of the delivering power of My kingdom, and I will not sit down any longer, nor will I stand back, for My people's cry has come up before My face. There has come forth a yearning for the darkness to be broken. There has come a yearning to know Me better--people praying. I have heard your prayers, and I come today as the Lord of the breakthrough to break through in your circumstances, to break through the darkness, to break through the power and to become a delivering power to you.

November 22, 1998: This word I speak to you today, says the Lord God. I have come in the delivering power of My kingdom.

November 20, 1998: Have you heard the cry of the eagles? From above has come the cry of My Spirit; it has come to you through the voices of those that soar upon the winds of My breath. They have spoken that this coming season would be known as a time of My justice, seasons of judgment upon the peoples of the earth. To My church, the watchword is COME! The cry of the Spirit is COME, for the winter is before you, and the fall will soon pass you by. So, I say come! First, you must come out from among them. Revelation 18:4-- "And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues." I have spoken to you that you must be found in safe habitations by the fall or surely justice will bring death to many. You must be found in Me, and so the cry of the Spirit says, come unto Me. Be found in Me, for I Myself am the safe habitation of My people. Come into the safe habitation of the sheepfold. Come into My Father's house, for the hour of judgment has come. John 5:25-27 "Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself, and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man." The winter comes and many shall fall away and sleep the sleep of death. Awake you who sleep come unto Me all of you who sleep the sleep of lukewarmness. Be not unequally yoked with the world. Matthew 11:28 -30"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Come and learn from Me, come with Me into the Valley of Vision, and I shall show you the things that are soon to come upon the earth, and when you see these things, your message will also be "Come!" Revelation 22:17 "And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely." And so it must be, My people, the message of the Spirit is come; your message must also be come, to everyone who thirsts bid them come to the living waters, for I am coming quickly. Have you heard, My people? Your lives will depend upon your hearing. He who has ears to hear let him hear. Come, My people! Isaiah 26:20-21 "Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past. For behold, the LORD comes out of His place To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; The earth will also disclose her blood, And will no more cover her slain." Amen.

 

November 15, 1998: My name is the Lord God Almighty. I am decreeing a time of My vindication, a time of My justice, a time of My vengeance. I say, you can no longer--you can no longer afford to remain in complacency, for surely the Spirit of the Living God comes upon My people in this time. You can no longer walk in lukewarmness; it will no longer be allowed. You cannot stay in positions of rebellion against My word, for I am the King, I am the Ruler, I am the Almighty. It is My house; it is My word; I am the Living Lamb of God, the Head of the Church, and I am issuing a decree today. The Ancient of Days is seated, and a judgment has been given forth that the saints of God shall now arise to live in the power of the Most High. There shall come a justification, a vindication, a year of justice in which I shall restore all things, saith the Lord.

 

November 13, 1998: I am building My church upon revelation of Myself. I uphold all things by the power of My word. I am going to keep you, hold you, nourish you. I am going to walk with you; I am your Counselor, your King, the Provider of the power that you need, and by the Spirit you will overcome all that comes against you. You will always triumph in Me.

It is written that My name is Jealous. I am the jealous One. I am jealous and zealous for My children, and I am the Lion of the tribe of Judah, and I have come to roar with My voice of victory into your lives. I am bringing you forth purified; I am bringing your forth without spot or wrinkle; I am bringing you forth by the power of My own hand. For surely, I have not only written your name upon My hand, but My hand is upon you to bring you forth and out from under bondage, to bring you forth into the glorious land. I have come to bring you across the Jordan. I have come to bring you into Canaan land. I have come to give you your inheritance, for this is the season of your inheritance. This is the time of due season into which I will pour My blessings if you will but believe. Believe in Me. I shall bestow upon you the blessings of the end of the age, for I have come to walk among My people; I have come to touch you; I have come to heal you; I have come to be your deliverer; I have come to be your counselor. I have come among My people with a voice of victory and the shout of triumph.

 

November 8, 1998: Eye has not seen; ear has not perceived the things that I am about to do among My people. Those that have come forth, those that have walked through the valley of the shadow of death, those that have come by way of Gethsemane, I will now begin to bring forth the golden oil from within, the anointing of My Spirit, and the power thereof that shall become a river of living water. That which I have spoken of in My Word shall now begin to flow. It will flow forth as a mighty rushing river, even as it is spoken of in My Word that on the day of Pentecost there came forth from heaven the sound of a mighty rushing wind. I say, if you listen, you can hear the sound of this mighty rushing river, the river of My anointing that comes forth, the river of My promise, the river of My power, the river of My purposes is about to touch this earth. When it does, watch out! I say, watch out, for you have not understood nor have you been able to perceive the magnitude and the power and the force with which it shall be birthed through the hearts of My obedient ones. It is even now beginning to flow. I say, it is even now beginning to flow. It is coming forth; it is up to your ankles; it is up to your waist. Now, get in the flow of My river and receive all that I have for you. I am pouring forth a fresh anointing today; I am bringing forth the golden oil that will bring light to this world and the hearts of many. You shall see the manifestation of the sons of glory, for I have decreed it, I have spoken it, and now it becomes.

 

November 6, 1998: I am the Eternal God! All things are possible with Me. I say that all things are possible for those who live in faith, those who will walk in faith, those who will believe are those that perceive that which I will do for them. I am not a God that withholds from you. But, you must see it and believe it to receive it. That is the way that I create and that is the way that I work within My kingdom. This is the kingdom of faith; you come in by faith, you live by faith, and you receive by faith. You must perceive, then, in the Valley of Vision those things which are necessary for you. For, I say to you they are there and they exist for you. If you will allow My hand to come upon you, I will lead you forth, and you will see things that you have never seen before and understand mysteries that you have never understood before. There are mysteries in My kingdom that you have not yet perceived, nor do you understand them, but My desire is to reveal them to My beloved in this dispensation, in this time and in this hour, for I am unsealing the books, and I am revealing the hidden mysteries that were set aside for this time, the time in which you live, I say the last generation upon this earth. So, I say, come up. Come up here! Come up here where I can open your eyes. Come up here where I can take your hand. Come up here where I can walk with you. Come up here where I can lead you forth into your purposes, the purposes that I have predestined you to walk in. Move from complacency. Move from the hindering spirits that are against you. Move out of the valley of destruction, and move into the valley of My presence. I say unto you, I did not create you to be victims, but to be conquerors. I did not create you to lose the battle, but to have victory in the battle. I did not create you to give in, but to overcome. So, come forth, My children! Rise up. Rise up! Come forth and see Me as I am, for if you can see Me as I am, all things that you need will be provided for you, and you will be found in safe habitations.

 

November 6, 1998: Look at your feet? Are they not bronzed? Are they not burnished? Are they not for walking over all the works of the enemy? Haven't they been refined in the fires of God? Haven't they come forth in strength and power? Haven't they been in the same fires that the Lord Jesus has walked in? The Spirit of the Living God says, trample under your feet the works of the enemy until they are but ashes, until they are but dust. Do it with hope and faith in Me, for I shall not leave you in a position of bondage; I have come to set every captive free, and lift every one up for My purposes, and not one of you shall fall short if you will but believe. You have been given calves feet so that you may go forth from the stalls with the healing power of God upon you, to walk over all the works of the enemy and trample them under foot until they are but dust.

 

 

October 31, 1998: My people perish for a lack of knowledge, says the Lord. It is written that they do not understand, and they perish where there is no vision. I say to you, and I call to you with a voice as loud and clear as I can bring forth from the temple of Zion; I shout unto you, enter into the Valley of Vision. Find your way through the rubble into My habitation. Come forth out of the world and ascend Zion's hill, for surely when you ascend Zion's hill, all that I have promised you lies before you in the Valley of Vision. That which you can perceive is that which you can have. In My valley is the presence of My company; in My valley is the anointing of My Spirit. In My valley is the virtue of the Lamb of God. In My valley are the healing virtues, the healing streams. In My valley lies the victory. I say come! Come! Come to this place.

 

October 25, 1998: The Lord says, it is time indeed for My people to enter into the Valley of Vision. I let these words ring in your spirit for a moment, for you do not understand. I say, it is time for each of you to enter into the Valley of Vision. The Valley of Vision is the supernatural realm of My kingdom where I give My orders, where I call My servants forth, where I broadcast openly My intentions for My church and My intentions for each of you as you walk through the realm of that glory. You must, therefore, enter into the Valley of Vision in this the day of decision, for there are many, many--multitudes in fact--in the Valley of Decision. It will only be My people who will walk in the Valley of Vision that shall be able to help those that are in the Valley of Decision, for I say, you must see My purposes; you must see that I am indeed casting over the balcony of My glory now the mantle of the anointing that will break the yokes of bondage. I am calling forth the Sons of Glory. This is a new day, and there will be a new dimension of power given to those who have submitted themselves to the work of My Spirit as I have come and chastened My sons and chastened My saints. Those that have submitted themselves to that chastening now are prepared to wear the mantle of power, the prophetic voice that will come forth by way of proclamation against the devices of the enemy and tear down the strongholds that are set against the peoples of this world. I decree it this morning. Enter into the Valley of Vision, My people.

 

October 23, 1998: The voice of God comes tonight, and He challenges the world. You are the people of righteousness that go forth to speak to them. Tell them this--in their heart lies the evil way of misunderstanding, for they say about you, they say about My chosen, they say about My children that it is only the feeble, it is only the weak, it is only the ignorant, it is only those that require a crutch that seek after Me. But, I tell you that their tune will soon change, for I am bringing the spirit of justice, the spirit of burning upon this world. Then, they will cry out. They will cry out of their own need, and they will say, "Let the rocks fall upon us; let us hide ourselves in caves that the great God that is bringing vengeance and justice to this world may not find us and not uncover us and that He may not look upon our sins." We have come to the day of judgment in which all things are spoken forth by the Spirit of the Lord. Now cometh forth the great misery of the day of the Lord, and all of the peoples of the world will have to bow, for each knee shall bow before My throne of judgment, and they shall indeed acknowledge that I am the Lord that liveth forever and forever and forever.

 

October 18, 1998: The Lord says, behold I have given you power over all the works of the enemy. Behold I give you power to tread upon serpents. Behold I give you authority over the dominion of Satan's world. Behold I give you weapons of warfare that you might destroy all of the works of the enemy that come against you in this hour. Do not be deceived, for the evil one has come to destroy you. Do not be deceived; he has come to take you prey. But, I say, behold I give you power. Power! I said I give you power to walk forth in victory, power to bring the sword of the Spirit against the enemy of your soul. I give you power, and I give you vision and insight by way of revelation into his devices that are formed against you, and I say be victorious. Be more than conquerors. Come forth in the power of the kingdom; exercise the authority that I have given you, and walk over all of his dominion. For surely, I say, you are free; whom the Son sets free is free indeed. I come to walk with you in freedom and liberty.

 

October 16, 1998: You are the children of the Lord, the children of Zion. You sing those songs from your heart, and you call Me Messiah; you call Me the Son of God; you call Me Savior; you call Me King. But, I come to you tonight to tell you that many yet have not found Me. Many still do not call to Me out of an intimate relationship. They call Me not by name, but they call me according to the images that they have engraved upon their hearts--graven images to the unknown God. Surely, I say, that they have not yet found Me. I am coming with an anointing to break the yoke that has held all of Mine from Me that they may find Me. I have spoken to you in times past that these are the days in which many walk through the Valley of Decision, but I say to some of you that it is the dark valley of the soul where you cry out wondering where I am, calling My name, but not able to find Me. But, I am just before you, waiting for you to reach unto Me, waiting for you to take hold of My hand, so I can lead you through this hour of the darkness of the shadow of the souls of men to bring you forth into new light and a new dimension.

 

October 9, 1998: I am coming, yes, with vengeance. Vengeance is not directed at My people; it is directed at the sin that has consumed My people. The vengeance is directed at Satan's kingdom and the kingdoms of the world that have brought defilement upon the life that I have given many. Yet, I am coming with judgment. I am coming with fire; I am coming with the sword of My Spirit, and with the very sword of My mouth, I must destroy even some of those who have called Me by name. It has already been clearly spoken in My Word, "Depart from Me you workers of iniquity, I never knew you." You would never come to Me and know My heart and My mind and My desires for you. I came even in the hour of darkness and urged you to come apart from your sin. I came even in the clouds of despair, and said, "Take heart in Me. Come apart. Come with Me. Walk with Me, and I shall save you and preserve you even to the end of the age." My Word declares that in the Valley there are multitudes--multitudes in the Valley of Decision. I say unto you, this is the time of the Valley of Decision; the decisions that are now being made at the end of the age will forevermore seal each one in his eternal habitation. I come tonight with a heart of mercy and a heart of love, and I compel you and call unto you and urge you to hearken to My words. I urge you to come aside. I urge you to seek Me with all of the power of your spirit. If you do, I will be with you and come to walk with you in the hour of temptation that comes upon the whole earth. I have been calling to you for some time now. I have said, "Come!" For, this is the day and the hour in which you must come. There will no longer be a delay. There will no longer be grace or mercy, for the season of the end is upon us and comes quickly. Surely that day will come when the wedding feast comes forth and the door is closed, and there will be those that desire to come in, but I will have to say, "No, no." You could have come, but you would not. Come unto Me now, and I shall never leave you. Come unto Me, and I shall never forsake you. Come unto Me, and I shall preserve you. Come unto Me, and My love shall sustain you. Come unto Me, and My Spirit shall keep you and counsel you. I shall show you the way in which you must walk. Indeed, judgment comes upon the earth and upon My very own house. Thus, it is written, and it will take place, so come! Come!

 

October 4, 1998: Listen, My people, says the Spirit of the Lord. I shall tell you; I will speak to you about the times and the seasons in which you live. Did I not come on the Feast of Trumpets and proclaim to you that I was bringing forth a victory in the earth? Did I not speak to you and say I was taking back title deed to the earth? Haven't I told you that even in that season I came to celebrate the victory that I was bringing forth in the earth? The beginning (I speak to you today), the beginning of the manifestations of the sons of God, which I have already prophesied and spoken through the mouths of My servants, that would come forth in this the year, 1998, will manifest in this month on the day of victory. You say, what is the day of victory? I say that Satan has seduced you and taken your mind away from the thoughts that I am trying to give you. The celebrations are not over. Is there not another feast before you? Have you forgotten that upon the morrow, I say upon the morrow begins the Feast of Tabernacles, and it was on the eighth day of that feast that I stood up in the assembly of the first born and said, if any man thirst, come unto Me and I will give you the rivers of life. Come unto Me, and I will give you the Spirit of God, and victory shall spring forth as that river flows out of your innermost being. I have come, I say, to bring a people forth. I am not speaking about a weak people. I am speaking about a people who will live in power, a people who will live in strength, a people who have discerned the times and the seasons--the seasons that are upon them, the appointed seasons, the time of God meeting with man. Now, from your mind, because of the circumstances that you are living in, Satan has washed out from you the remembrance of the glorious appointed times of the seven-day celebration where you are to tabernacle with Me. If you will enter this time of feasting, of tabernacling with Me, the manifest presence of the sons of God shall come forth, I say, upon the eighth day of that feast. For it is written within My heart --the seasons and the times are written. This is a time that I have looked forward to from the foundations of this earth when I, Myself, would pour out the living water in a greater dimension, in a new dimension of power, and the living sons of God would manifest themselves in this the season of victory. It must be so because I have prophesied it, and I bring it forth by My strength in this the season of the restoration of all things.

 

October 4, 1998: The Lord comes to encourage each of you today. , I have brought forth My love for you in a new dimension, a place of strength. This question I ask you--how much do you love Me? I ask you the same question that I asked Peter. Do you love Me? Do you love Me? Do you love Me? I say, if you loved Me, you would stop the strife. If you loved Me, you would stop the arguments. If you loved Me, you would stop the contention. If you loved Me, you would stop the deception. If you loved Me, you would come out from among them, out from the powers of the world that hold you, out from the chains of bondage, and you would come to My glorious light where I fulfill all of your needs in this kingdom. That happens only when My desire becomes your desire and when your desire becomes a thirsting and when your desire becomes a hunger, when there is a hunger within you for more of Me, a hunger that compels you, a hunger that grips you, a hunger that consumes you, a thirsting after the righteousness of My kingdom, a thirsting after relationship with me. I say, it only comes as you hunger and thirst. When you do, you shall be filled, says the Lord God. Remove your eyes from the world. Remove your eyes from yourself. Stop defending yourself. Stop contending for your own rights. Stop judgment of others with harshness and criticism. Come forth and live in the light of the Lamb of God, and then all that I have that exists within My precious promises that I have given you will flow as a river of living water. It will come forth into your life. The manifest presence of My kingdom shall bring forth a harvest of fruit, a glorious harvest of fruit, the fruit of My kingdom that is birthed from a heart that is committed and submitted unto Me.

 

September 27, 1998: By the Spirit of the Living God, I speak to your hearts. There are those of you in this place, in this habitation, and you have worn yourselves out of faith. You have become discouraged, and you have let the evil one trod on you; you have let the devil steal your joy. You have let him steal from you and take your peace. You have let him steal the weapons of victory that I have given to you. You have allowed him to become a intruder in your house. The strong man has come to you and bound you up with chains of bondage, but I am the One who has come to break the bonds of the evil one. I come today in the fullness of My kingdom and say, be free, for whom the Son sets free is free indeed.

 

September 27, 1998: As I was worshipping the Lord, I saw a vision of a highway with many cars lined up, and they were all at a standstill, and there were barricades across the road much like those that you see at train tracks where that big, long arm comes down. Some of you here are feeling like you are going nowhere. You are stopped and you can't move because there is a restriction ahead of you. What is it that raises that barricade? Is it electricity, the power turned on, the switch turned on? If the Holy Spirit comes in power to lift the barricade, then you can cross unless you are worried about the train that is supposed to be coming--that is Satan's threat, the train of destruction. You are not sure, even though the barricade has been raised, that God is allowing you to go through or whether it is a deception. So, the Spirit of the Lord says, go through! Go through the gates. Go through; go through the gates! The victory is assured. Go through the gates by faith. Go through the gates and find Me in the kingdom and be inspired by the Living God that brings you into safe habitations and produces the voice of victory within you. It is the shout of faith that brings forth the victory.

 

September 25, 1998: I hear the whispering voice of the Spirit tonight saying I am the Lord that healeth thee. I am the Christ that has come not only to bring forth salvation, but I have come to tend you. You are My children, and I am the great Shepherd of the heart. Many of you have been wounded within your hearts. I say unto that I have come to heal the broken hearted. I have come to heal those wounded in spirit. I have come to make you whole. I have come to touch you. So, I call you forth. Come unto Me. Come unto Me, for I have seen the terror that you have lived in, the fear that has come upon you. I have witnessed from My heavenly realm the accusations that have come against you. Yes, even the blows of those that loved you, even the blows of those that cursed you. They have come by way of spirit; they have come upon you and dashed you upon the rocks. But, I say, I have come to heal My wounded ones, for this is a new day, a day of expectation, a day of wonder, a day in which I am pouring out a greater measure of My Spirit upon My kingdom and those that live within My kingdom. My voice comes to encourage you. I say, come unto Me all of you who are wounded and those who are heavy laden, and I shall be the One that has come upon you to heal you. Surely the Father has sent forth His word and He has brought healing upon the land. Come to Me. Come and be healed. Come and release your cares. Come to Me and believe. Believe that I am for you; believe that I am watching over you. Believe that My great desire is to have you whole. My great desire is to see you rise up in faith to receive the touch of the Master. Come to Me.

 

September 25, 1998: To several of you, I am about to open for you new doors, and I am going to bring you out into the sunshine of life. I will bring you new opportunities. I will bring you into a place, a new habitation where you will know Me better than you do this moment. Do not despair; do not allow your circumstances to dictate to you; rather, let My voice dictate to you. I am about to bring you out. I am bringing you to new ground and higher places than ever you have been before.

 

September 20, 1998--Bill Burns: The Spirit says, who is the King of Glory? The voice of prophecy says, it is I, Jesus! For I have moved My throne over the circle of the earth, and if you would listen, you would hear the shouts of the heavenly angels. You would hear the cry of their voice of the victory. You would hear the sound of the trumpet as it comes forth. What am I declaring? I am declaring a celebration, a celebration of victory. But, the trumpet is sounding a call to war. It is sounding and calling forth My people to final victory and bringing them forth to safe habitations. It is arming them and giving them the presence and power of the Spirit, and the voice of My kingdom is being birthed within them to proclaim to the inhabitants of the world that Christ is coming again. Again, I say, I am seated over the circle of the earth, and I am releasing My angelic forces. Can you see the chariots of fire coming forth? Every knee will bow and every enemy will be defeated, for they are soon to be crushed under your feet. The angelic power of My kingdom is now being released, and chariots of heavenly gold are coming forth with flaming, fiery darts and arrows that will destroy the enemy that is before you and the enemy that pursues you. I say unto you, do not be weak; do not be discouraged, for I am coming forth in the power of My kingdom. The angelic beings, those evil angels that have come against you and brought defilement into the land are now about to be destroyed under the realm and the power of My kingdom. I say it, and shout it with My own voice that you might be encouraged. I am throwing a celebration in honor of the victory that is to come. I call those things which must come forth; I call them forth as though they were. I call forth victory into your lives; I call forth victory into the church; I call forth victory from My heavenly throne, for I am seated over the circle of the earth. The earth is Mine and the fullness thereof; I am the Creator of it. I am now taking back the title deed to earth, for it is My habitation for My people, says the Lord.

 

September 18, 1998--Bill Burns: I had a dream. In the dream I was driving down a road in a canyon in a white pickup truck with my wife. I looked up ahead and saw a white wolf jumping a fence, and then saw a white sheep jump up ahead of the wolf. My inclination was to take the rifle from the gun rack in my truck and step out of the truck to get a good shot in order to kill the wolf before it got the sheep. But, the Holy Spirit checked me and told me to stay in the truck. Then, we got a little closer to where the wolf was, and could see that it was a mechanical wolf and a mechanical sheep. They were set in motion by a laser beam that crossed the highway. As I was sitting there looking at the absurdity of this mechanical wolf, I spotted about a dozen real wolves in the brush. Then many wolves, probably about 100, came out and gathered around the truck. At that point, it became obvious that the mechanical wolf was a trap to draw me out of the safety of the vehicle. If I had not listened to the voice of the Spirit, I would have been attacked.

Interpretation: The Holy Spirit has been telling us to stay in safe habitations for some time now. The white truck represented the safe habitation of righteousness in Christ. The inclination to use the rifle represented a temptation to use worldly weapons, or to take matters into our own hands, but the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to pull down strongholds. The white wolf and sheep as bait represented a seducing spirit sent to get us out of safe habitations. Even though it seemed like a good cause, it was still a trap. The Lord is warning us to stay in Him and not be seduced even by situations that seem noble. The key is to be found in Him, walking in the Spirit, so that when Satan's snares come, we are not seduced into places of danger.

 

September 11, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Spirit of the Lord says that many of you have been watching for the wolves without and you have forgotten the one within. I call him a devourer; his name is the flesh. It is that wolf that comes to devour you. Stop worrying so much about those that are without and start being aware of the ravenous wolf within, the one that leads you to the desires of your heart, the one that causes you to elevate flesh against My desires. It is the desire of the flesh that will lead you astray in this testing, for indeed the crucible has been formed and the fire is coming forth. I say unto you, it is your own flesh that must die. Turn inward now and look to that which is trying to destroy you from within. I am speaking to you about your attitudes, your motives, your thoughts, your hungering and desires according to the world--those things that bring defilement to the temple. Is it not written in My word that I must destroy the temple that is defiled? (1 Corinthians 3:17) I issue you a warning with strength and with power and with the voice of thunder again to bring forth with clarity. This is that warning which you must heed--look to the wolf within.

 

September 6, 1998--through Bill Burns: I had a vision of a room that was upside down; the floor was on the ceiling, and I was surprised by the number of lamps that were there. There were more lamps than were normal for a house, floor lamps, table lamps, all kinds of lamps. Then a rumbling came through and everything fell. Lights were broken and lamps were put out. And, the Lord God says, I am about to turn upside down and shake everything again; everything that can be shaken will be shaken. And through the process of this shaking, many will fall, and their lamps will be put out never to shine again. But this, My children, does not have to be for you. For you know the season in which you live, for I have come to you with words of warning, and I have spoken to you about the falling that would come in the fall--the fall of those who are not found in secure habitations, My habitations. What do I mean when I say be found in secure habitations in the fall? I will tell you this morning exactly what I mean to those of you that love Me, for it is given to you to know. For when I say be found in secure habitations, I mean be found securely in Me. Be found securely in the love of the Father. Be found securely in the leading and the guiding of the Holy Spirit. Be found secure in your seeking after Me, your desire for Me, your hungering and thirsting. Be found in Me, says the Lord. For indeed there shall come a great shaking upon the land, and many shall not survive that shaking. There will be those that have turned their own lamps on and those that have desired to live in their own habitations, and they have not listened to the words of My warning and they are not making the preparations of the heart for the season of justice, the season of judgment, the season of burning that is to come upon this land. I say again to you today, be found in safe habitations. Come aside and seek after Me. Desire Me more than all that you desire within the world and all that comes to you by way of self nature. Come aside to Me again. I am calling you. If you have listened to My prophetic voice, you have heard the cry of the Spirit saying, come unto Me. I have been speaking those words--come unto Me! I am the safe habitation, the only habitation that will survive. I am the One that knows all things, the One that leads all things, the One that guides all things. I know all that is within you, even the very intentions of your heart. I say again, come unto Me and take up a place of security, a place and habitation of strength, a place of provision where I can minister to you all the fruits of righteousness that come to you by way of My Spirit of truth which I send upon you today. Surely you are in the season of a change of all things. I declare to you that the leaves on the trees will dictate that change. Coming forth is a new season, a time of preparation must come forth in your minds and hearts so that you can come forth into My kingdom and I can teach you in the School of the Spirit about the things that are coming forth and the things that you will have to endure. Come into My class room and let My Spirit teach you. This is that day.

 

September 5, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Spirit says, some of My people who ought to know better are still bitter. Surely they would say, "Oh no, I have forgiven." But, I say, out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks forth the truth of the matter. When you hear criticism, what is that? When you hear accusation cloaked in self-righteousness, what is that? When you continue to hear of past offenses, what is that? When you hear a mocking spirit, what is that? I will tell you what it is. It is the root of bitterness that will defile many, and I tell you that revival cannot be birthed in an atmosphere of bitterness. Repentance must take place, or I will come and remove the candlestick of revival from its place.

 

September 4, 1998--through Bill Burns: It is time, My people, to arise and go forth and tell who I am. This was My question to My disciples, "Who do they say that I am?" And, it was Peter who, by revelation, said, "You are the Christ, the Son of God." This is who you must tell them that I am. Tell them that the Christ has come and that I have died for their sins. Many have now been prepared to receive this message. Not only have they been prepared, but so have you, and to you it will now be given to know Me in a greater way, a more profound way. As you go forth to tell them that I AM has come and died for them, forget not to tell them that I am returning for those who have chosen Me. Behold I come quickly.

 

August 30, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: If I am the Lord God, and I am, then I have spoken to you and said that I would give you signs in the earth. I have given you a sign even in these last few services. It is the sign of the trumpet. Is there not a sign of the trumpet in your midst? What do you hear? Just a sound; I say no more than a sound. It is the call of My trumpet to My watchmen. It is the sound that calls you to battle. It is the sound that assembles My troops. It is a sound that is coming from the heavenly realm and manifesting itself in this world. It is the sound that is calling you unto Me. It is the sound that is calling you apart from the world. It is the sound within your spirit. Come unto Me, My children, for the day of judgment approaches. But now I give you sounds in the earth to prepare you. Is it not the sound of victory? I say it is the sound that calls you in, and it is the sound that sends you out. Hear the sound and let it stir your spirit. Hear the sound, and let it awaken you. Hear the sound and let it bring you forth, for these are not the days in which to slumber. Hear the sound and let it awaken you. Hear the sound of My voice within, and let it come forth with the fullness of the power of thunder, for surely I am calling My watchmen forth. Will you take your place in the wall? Take your place in the wall for I am rebuilding the foundations, and I say to you when the wall is rebuilt, the Majesty of its kingdom will be hung upon the hinges, and the great gate into the mysteries of God and the great gate into the heavenly realm shall be opened unto you. It shall be given unto you to ascend before the Lord Almighty and descend with the message that angels have desired to know. I say unto you today, I have indeed given you the signs in the earth of that which I am doing in the heavenlies. Listen once more to the sound of the trumpet, and as you hear it, embrace it with your spirit man and say, Lord, loose the trumpet in me.

 

August 30, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: Yes, there is an open heaven before those that will clear the air of their own prerogatives, their own desires, their own agendas. There is an open heaven before those now. If you will come to Me under this open heaven with a desire, I tell you today that My lightning shall strike you, and the illumination of My power shall fall upon you and quicken you by the Spirit that I have given to you. You will indeed hear the voice of the Almighty, and those things that He speaks forth into Your spirit you will go forth and become the voice of thunder in this land, and My declarations shall be announced and they shall be made and they shall be proclaimed among the nations. Yes, I have a people, even in this generation, and it shall be as it was in the days of Elijah when the prophet himself thought that he was the only one, the last one. I spoke to him and said, oh no; I have reserved for Myself a people. I have hidden them away in the caves. I Myself have been teaching them. I have been revealing Myself to them. I Myself will now bring them forth into the glorious light and the manifestation of My kingdom, and you shall make that announcement. Behold, your King comes riding on a white stallion in triumph over this world.

 

August 21, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: I am going to come to you in greater ways and in greater measure and bring the power of My Spirit into your lives. I will restore the power of My Spirit and the truth of My word. I am looking for those who will worship Me in Spirit and truth with no entanglement with the world. Lay aside your desires and come to Me with open hearts. Seek after Me, believe in Me, come to Me, for I am the King who washes you and cleanses you from your sins. The King of righteousness has come tonight to awaken His people, to bring you back from the world and the ways of the world and bring you out from under the cloak and clouds of defilement that Satan has brought against you, to bring you back to your First Love, to bring you back to be nurtured in your hearts, to bring you back and deliver you from all demonic oppression, to bring you back to the house of the Lord God Almighty--to the inner chamber where you can commune with Me and sit down and fellowship with Me, for indeed, I have prepared a table for you. Yes, even in the midst of your enemies, and I come to be with that one that gives himself and that one that comes apart unto Me. I say, children, come to Me. Are you not the children of God? Sometimes the children get lost along the way. Sometimes the storms overtake them and the darkness surrounds them, and they cannot see the path. I am the King glory, and I will light the way if you will ask. Come unto Me. Come. I am calling My people back. Come away from the apostasy and the seduction and seducing spirits that the evil one has sent against you. I am calling you back into a life of purity and holiness, a life of oneness with Me, for I am washing My bride, and she shall be without spot or wrinkle before that great day of the trumpet. Come.

 

August 16, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: There are testings, testings and trials coming upon My people. These are for the purpose of bringing forth a transparency of their hearts that I, the King of kings, might look upon their hearts and find no guile and find no flaws within them or find nothing in the way of darkness in them. For, I am purifying My people in this age that they might become the living stones, the glorious stones, stones which will be formed together and fit together in perfect habitation for My presence.

 

August 16, 1988--through Bill Burns--THE PARABLE OF THE TREES: The understanding will only be given those to whom it applies. This is a parable of six trees. It speaks of God's work in the lives of those that He has chosen and the lives of those He is working in. Two of those trees are alive and four are dead.

The first tree represents the covenant of the Living God. It represents His promise; it represents His purpose; it represents His call. It represents His promise that He will be with those He has called. It represents the giving of His Spirit to those that would become His ministers, and with that comes His provision, the faithfulness of His kingdom extended to those who will hearken to the call. The first tree is alive.

The second tree is broken at the base. It is down. It represents our places of dependency on other people. Because, you see, when you answer the call, there must come a time and a place where the brokenness of other relationships does not hinder you; the brokenness of other relationships does not keep you from the call. It does not keep you from going on. It does not keep you from walking with the Lord. The second tree, then, represents a dying to places of strength as they exist in other people. God will let you have your Elijahs for awhile, but there will come a day when He takes them from you.

The third tree represents the power of God who is now working in your life to break the powers of witchcraft against you because you have chosen to go on and to walk with Him even though you walk alone, and He will come by His Spirit and break the powers of control that are against you--the spirits of antichrist, those things that cause you to desire to get things your own way. He will break those by His Spirit so that you can be set at liberty and set in the position of freedom because whom the Son sets free is free indeed and under no one's control but under God's control Himself.

The fourth tree, which is also dead, represents the broken relationships that were based on worldly purposes. It represents those things which must be broken that abide in the world; those things that abide in the self nature. It represents a dying to self. It represents putting God first. It represents walking with the Lord God Almighty.

The fifth tree has no life in it because it represents the heartbreak of the loneliness of this walk. When you walk with God, there will be places of loneliness, places where you feel like your heart is going to break. You will find yourself in the spirit of Elijah saying, Lord God, there is no one else; take me home!

The sixth tree is a young tree. This is a tree that is planted by living water. This is the result of your continuing on with God. You are walking with Him through the storms. You are enduring the loneliness of the seasons, enduring the walk in which you are rejected. It represents His life. This tree has one trunk, but it has two branches. It is strong. It represents the unity of the Lord. It represents His unity in your life. You are no longer alone. No longer do you have to walk in loneliness; no longer do you have to endure the journey by yourself, but you are bound together in the presence of God Almighty, and you have become one with Him, one with His purpose, and now you are planted by the living waters, nourished by Him, alive in Him. The self nature has been cut off, and you are growing up in the Lord together, one with another.

 

August 14, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: Scott Wilke had a vision of a large gong, bronze or gold in color; it was held up by two lions. Either reflecting on the gong or projecting from it was blue sky and fluffy clouds. Bill kept hearing bells and a trumpet blow. And so My children, I would say unto you, for the vision is in your mind now and the words are in your ears. Can you hear the sound? Can you hear the ringing of the bells? Can you hear the blowing of the trumpet? I am coming for a bride; I say, I am coming for My bride, and I will give you signs even in this earth of the wedding feast. I am coming for Mine, beloved, I am coming in the clouds of glory, and I say as I come the sound of My voice shall be a trumpet upon the land, and it shall ring throughout the heavens, and it will declare to all the world that I have come for My beloved. As I come for you, I come in clouds of glory. I announce to you that I am the Lion of the tribe of Judah. I have come now as the Lion of Power and the Lion of Love. As I come to My beloved, I shall impart through My love My power to her, and she shall be My witness in the earth before the great day of that feast. If you listen carefully, you can hear the sound, ringing of the gong, the chiming of the cymbals, the ringing of the bells throughout the land to announce that I am indeed coming, for this is the season of My coming, and it is not too far away. This you must remember, the days of glory shall not precede the days of justice. In the midst of those things that are coming upon the earth, keep your ears atuned to the sound, the chimes and the cymbals and the clang upon the gong which calls you home into My heart, a place of habitation where love will be poured out upon you. If you are found in this safe habitation of My heart, surely My power shall be yours, and it shall rest upon you. I am the Lion of Love and the Lion of Power. This is a new thing, a young thing I am about to do. Even the world itself will wonder with amazement that I have chosen My beloved.

 

August 9, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: Have I not spoken to you in the word of My authority that you are the trees of the field, and I say, if you watch the trees, they will dictate seasons. For as the seasons change, so does the foliage on My trees. You are about to see a change in the season. The trees will dictate it and the signs will be there, and even as the fall approaches and the leaves begin to fall, you can know that death will come to many. If you have been one who has walked among my precious creation, you will have noticed that through the winter months some of those trees that lost their leaves in the fall did not survive the winter, the storms and the cold. But, to those who are Mine, I shall bring you apart and put you into a place of security. Those seasons will become times of introspection and meditation upon My word as led by the Spirit of the Living God, and you shall come forth in the spring time with renewed energy, with vigor and with victory in your life. But, I say that judgment shall come in the fall, and many will die, and many shall lose their foliage never again to regain it because they continued in disobedience to My word. I have voiced through the mouths of My prophets that this age was coming, that this season was coming. You know by now that I expect you to discern the times and the seasons, for it is written there is a time for death and a time for life, a time for change, a time to be one with Me, a time to be united with Me. I say this is that age and this is that dispensation. I would come to you today as the great Encourager, and say do not allow the seasons to come upon you unknowingly. But, be ready for the fall, and do not be one that has fallen. This I bring today because I love you. It is by way of preparation--I do nothing unless I share with you that which I am about to do. Mark this day on your calendar, and if disobedience comes, you can look back and say, I remember the warning of the Lord; that day I should have listened. Do not be one of those, my children, but listen to the word that comes now and start preparing your habitations to bring forth security for the storms are about to descend upon the earth and upon the land. Do not allow them to take you by surprise, and do not let them take you unaware. Be prepared, for I am in this season preparing My Bride. I am anointing her with the oil of joy and the spirit of gladness, and she shall have no spots or wrinkles. But surely the fall is coming, says the Lord Almighty.

 

August 7, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: There are those of you who are still not honoring the Lord God with all of your heart and all of your substance, for you are still serving the idol of self, and you still want things your way, and you are operating in the spirit of witchcraft by manipulation, for you are still desiring the things of the world and the things that you have in mind for yourself. I say to you today, forsake all and come and follow Me, for I am faithful. I am the faithful One. I am the restorer of the broken heart, the restorer of the wounded spirit, the restorer of the broken life. This you must do--you must come to Me in boldness to My throne with repentance upon your lips. Come with joy in your heart for the expectation of My coming to you and receiving you as My child. It is My greatest joy to bring forth the wounded one that has strayed out into the fields, into the highways and into the places of defilement, and bring that one back home into the place of glory. For God would, by the Spirit, bring you to the Father's house and put a ring upon your finger and a robe upon your shoulders, and say, enter into My kingdom My child. Do not stray into the world, for there are wolves and lions and the spirit of death seeking to take you. Come with boldness, for I am faithful. I am the faithful One, the holy One of Israel. I neither slumber nor sleep. I see all of the wickedness of your ways, for the heart of man is indeed wicked. But, if you will give your heart to Me, I will take that stony heart out of you and replace it with a heart of flesh, one that can build faith, one that can be renewed in the spirit of My kingdom, one that can have joy, one that can laugh again, one that can relish My presence again. I say, you must come with openness in your heart and openness in your mind. Your mouth must be a mouth that speaks no guile, but come to Me with the everlasting words of "Father, I have come home. Abba, Father, I have come to You. I have come with My needs and I have come wearing my filthy garments, and I am asking You to wash me with the blood of Your precious Son that fellowship may be restored."

 

August 2, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: The Lord God says to you today, is it not written that the whole of creation is in travail for the manifest presence of the sons of the Living God? Is it not in travail for the lives of those that are floundering, those that are backslidden, those that are lukewarm? Is it not in travail to see the glory of My word revealed in the earth as it is coming forth now by the mouths of the prophets and those that I have sent to speak unto you the life of the glorious way? I bring to you this word today. Come into My temple for I have given you the invitation to come boldly before the Lord God Almighty and His throne. I say to you, if you will come, and if you will linger there and meditate there in My presence, you shall be given a heart like David had. You shall be given the revelation knowledge that manifests through the Word that became the written psalms of glory. You shall receive the spirit of strength for war, for I say unto you, I am now doing a new work. The veil has been rent and torn asunder, and the way is open to each of you now. The way is open for you to come into the glory of the manifest presence of your God, your Father, your King. The King of glory will come upon you with His manifest presence to cause you to shine as lights in this world, for I am preparing the way to the end of time. Be assured that My temple is being built. Do not worry about the days that are before you, even though they are filled with rumors of terror; even though they are filled with rumors within the church of fear. I say do not worry, for am I not in the presence of My people, walking among My people, protecting My people, bringing them to the place of safety under My outspread wings? Is not that the hiding place that I have prepared for you? I say to you today, ascend before the throne of glory and let My presence come upon you.

 

July 26, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Lord says, listen and I shall teach you the victory of Calvary, for My word has brought forth the essence of that which I am doing in the earth now. And, this is that which was spoken. I am bringing forth a prophetic word through the hearts and the minds and the mouths of My people which shall destroy all the works of the enemy. As you come under the anointing of My kingdom, and as you come through the fire of My Spirit, I say unto you the devils will tremble and they will leave because they cannot stay in My presence. When you walk with Me into the places that I send you, behold I am walking you into those places for victory. I am not taking you to those places so that you can serve self. I am not taking you into those places so that you can even satisfy self. I am taking you into those places so that I can destroy the religious spirits and the satanic spirits and the darkness and the demons that would prevail over the earth. This is My day, the day of glory, and I have come to restore the fullness of My power into the hearts of those that will believe. I said that I would do it, and now I am doing it. Believe and go forth under the anointing, under the anointing, I say under the anointing, because I declare to you it is by the blood that you are free, by the blood that you have victory, and by the blood that Satan is defeated. Declare to the world that the shed blood of Calvary obtained the glorious eternal victory. Do it in the name of My Son, and I will honor your words and bring forth a mighty breaking forth in the earth of the new and the supernatural that I have spoken about that is to come forth in this the end of the age.

 

July 19, 1998--through Bill Burns:The Spirit of the Lord says to His people this morning, My name is the Christ. I say, I am the Anointed One. You, by your compromise and your ineffectiveness in seeking Me, have allowed the spirit of complacency to come upon you. You have allowed Satan to overrun your ranks. You have allowed him to steal your joy. You have allowed him to bring unworthiness into your life. But, because I have spoken to you that in your very weakness My strength has been made perfect, I come in the strength of My kingdom this morning, and I come in the strength of My word. My Spirit now speaks forth by the sword of the Spirit. I have come to intervene for you because you are still My children. I still love you and I still cause you to come to victory. So I come with the sword of My mouth against you, Satan, I bind the spirit that you have sent against My people. I break the powers that you have sent against them. I loose them, as captives, into the freedom of My kingdom. I come with the sword of My Spirit, and I say they shall not live according to the accusations, but they shall live by the preceding word of the Lord God Almighty that comes forth to set them into a place of liberty, for it is My will in all of the earth that My people be found in freedom and liberty. You are rebuked by the sword of My Spirit, and you will take your position behind Me, Satan.

 

July 17, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Lord keeps speaking the word "avalanche," and I keep thinking--Lord, this is summertime; avalanche has to do with wintertime. I hear the voice of the Lord saying, avalanche, avalanche, avalanche warning! Surely the evil one has come to run you over. He has come to smother you; he has come to cover you with clouds of darkness, with clouds that are so thick that you cannot find your way. In the midst of the avalanche of this depression, this avalanche of oppression that comes upon God's people, he will whisper to you lies, and those lies will cause you to react with fear, for in the darkness of the avalanche you are lost and you cannot clearly see your way. You feel as though you are being carried by something that you cannot have victory over. In fact, it is carrying you to the very edge of the cliff and you are in despair. But, I say look up for the light of the living Lamb of God and the sunshine of the glorious Son of righteousness shall melt away the clouds of darkness. Even I, the Lord of Glory, shall bring forth an intensity of light that shall disperse the darkness, and you shall see clearly. There will be no fear in the darkness, for I come as Lord over the darkness. When My power breaks upon the darkness, you shall be free and your eyes shall see again, and you shall know the way of the Lord, for I am the Lord who is over all of Satan's kingdom. I have the right of decision and decree to limit his accusations, to limit his intrusion and to limit his war against you. I have set My decree in the heavenlies, and I will bring you through in victory, for I have put you in the palm of My hand, and I am hiding you even now from the intentions of the evil one. Do not despair, but look up. Look up, I say, for your redemption draws nigh.

There are several of you that the Lord is speaking to me about. The sword that you have been carrying is a two-edged sword, but on one side of the sword is faith and on the other side of the sword is fear. Sometimes you respond with faith, and when you draw the sword forth from the scabbard, sometimes you respond with fear. The Lord would have you take the sword to Him and have Him sharpen it for you and have it become faith on two edges so that there is no fear whatsoever. So, when you draw the sword there is no longer uncertainty, but there is an absolute condition of faith because you know that on both sides is faith, and you will not be defeated in battle.

Through Marsha Burns: The enemy has brought temptation to be irritated and just off a little bit. You don't really know what it is. There is a temptation for fault-finding, to blame somebody else for your not feeling quite right on. The Lord is telling us to resist that temptation to blame somebody else for the sense of discontentment or irritation. There is a contentious thing loose. The Lord is saying that this is an attack of the enemy. If you will just come into His peace; come into His presence. Resist the temptation to put it out there and blame someone else. This is just an attack. There is also a spirit of fantasy loose that will draw you off into thinking that if you will just change something or do this or go there or do that, that everything is going to be happy and peaceful. The problem is in you. He wants you to come close and come back into that place where you know it is Him, you are with Him, you are in Him. Resist the temptation to make sudden changes or sudden moves because there is a spirit loose and it is fantasy that entices and distracts to get you off into places where you ought not be. Proverbs 21:5, "The plans of the dilligent lead surely to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty."

Through Bill Burns: I had a strange sensation in my left hand, and the Lord said, don't be moved by the desire of your left hand, but be moved by the right hand of God's covenant promise. The right hand depicts His authority and His strength and His covenant and His ability to move you into the place that He wants you to be. Don't be moved by the left hand of desire, but by the right hand of covenant.

Through Marsha Burns: The enemy is trying to drive you into places where you need not go. You need to be really quiet and really still right now. I know that sometimes when you are so emotionally invested in what you are doing and upset about it or driven like that, you don't hear from God like you need to. You need to settle down and get into a place of peace where you KNOW that you are hearing from the Lord. It is so easy when you are driven to say, I heard from God in this thing and then it really wasn't the Lord because your soul is too much engaged, and you are too emotionally involved in your situation and circumstances to really hear the voice of God. Remember that the voice of God didn't come in the whirlwind or the earthquake or the fire--it came in the still small voice! You need to be quiet and listen for the voice of God; don't be driven by this thing.

Through Bill Burns: That is what the Lord is saying, don't be driven by the wind; don't be carried by the avalanche. Get out of it and into His safety, into His presence.

 

July 12, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Lord spoke a word to me while we were praising, and He said, Martha, Martha! I have many Marthas in My kingdom. There are many who are living in anxiety; they are worrying about this and fretting about that! Martha, you are fretting; Martha, you are stewing, but I say unto you that your sister has done the best part. Now I invite you to come and sit at My feet, for if you do, these burdens shall be lifted. If you do, the sweet presence of My love shall come upon you. If you will sit at My feet, I will teach you Myself, and I will show you the love of My heart. I will give unto you the gifts of the Kingdom. But, you must come; you must cease from your own activities. You must stop and rest, and you must see that this is the day of salvation. Stand still, I say, and see the salvation of the Lord. Stand STILL, I say, and see the salvation of the Lord! For if you do not learn to rest with Me during this time, dangerous waters may consume you. It may be so that you become so active that you lose your way in the night, for darkness is coming upon the earth as never before. These are the final stages of darkness before the glorious breaking forth of My light, for the Day of the Lord comes surely. Expect it. But now is a dangerous time, so I admonish you today, Martha. Peace...be still! Rest at My feet; learn of Me.

 

July 11, 1998--A Vision given to Bill Burns: A ship moving at a very high rate of speed with sails fully open. The sails should be down in a gale such as is blowing. The ship is out of control and in danger of breaking up and sinking.

Interpretation: The ship represents the vessel of the prophetic voice that the Lord has built and sent out upon the sea of humanity. When the Lord sent the vessel forth, the crew in anticipation fully raised the sails and the gentle breeze of the Holy Spirit filled the sails. The voice of the prophets began to speak with the wind of the Spirit. But now, the winds of adversity have descended upon the vessel of the Lord to bring destruction. When this kind of turbulent wind comes up, one must lower the sail to survive the storm. Spiritually, that means to slow down and don't be driven. Be still. Acts 27:9-10, "Now when much time had been spent, and sailing was now dangerous because the Fast was already over, Paul advised them saying, 'Men I perceive that this voyage will end with disaster and much loss, not only of the cargo and ship, but also our lives.'" The same condition that exists in the spirit right now is revealed in Acts 27:13-15, "When the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, putting out to sea, they sailed close by Crete. But not long after, a tempestuous head wind arose, called Euroclydon. So when the ship was caught, and could not head into the wind, we let her drive." As I began to write this warning out, a strong southeast wind came up suddenly to confirm the vision.

Prophets of the Lord, be still! Lower that sail and reduce speed. Get off the high sea and anchor your vessel in His harbor and wait the storm out. Seek the light house and let the Captain (Jesus) guide you into smooth waters.

Note: There is much revelation about this present condition revealed in Acts chapter 27 for those who have ears to hear and a heart to seek.

 

July 10, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: I hear the rain! Do you hear it? For God is bringing His rain to declare victory. He is bringing His rain to declare liberty. He is bringing His rain to bring refreshing and to bring the anointing of the Most High in a double portion upon His people, for He has decreed it and He has set it forth in His heart that His people would be free, that they might walk in the rain. I say, walk in the rain; get in the rain. Let the rain cleanse you; let the rain bring down the defilement. Let the rain wash your hearts. Let the rain wash your spirits. Walk in the cleanness of the rain of God Almighty, and cause all things to be brought under that refreshing rain of the latter rain of His Spirit, for this is the time of the rain--the preparation of the harvest. The preparation of the harvest is before you, but the rain must prepare the soil, and it is the soil of your heart that I must prepare first, says the Lord God Almighty.

 

July 5, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: The Spirit of the Lord says, some of you are sensing the spirit of liberty. It is designed by me, for this is the day of My liberation. I have already declared unto you that this is the year of Jubilee, and the purpose of the years of the Jubilee is to set you free from every bondage of corrupt governments. And I say the government that is corrupt that is against you is Satan's kingdom. Yesterday, the world celebrated its independence, but I am celebrating My independence this day, for I have chosen this time of the year to pour out of My Spirit blessings upon My people that the fullness of Jubilee may come into their lives. The fullness of Jubilee may now be released into their spirits. The fullness of Jubilee may come in the power of My Spirit and loose every captive; to loose each one who has been under the bondage of a corrupt government, the government of Satan himself. I say that the army of my independence is again rising up as in the days of old, and the war for independence begins this day. This is the day that I have chosen because it begins first in the natural, but now I am moving you to the spirit where truly all the word of My mouth can be fulfilled. I say unto you, am I not the Lord of glory? None of My words shall fall short, and I prophesy victory to each of you. I prophesy to each one of you that you will have victory over the enemy, the enemy of your soul, the enemy that promotes the corrupt government in this world whose name is Satan, the prince of the power of the air. I have come today to liberate you! The anointing that you sense, the anointing is brought by the Spirit that I have sent into this place to bring joy, to bring liberty, to bring the spirit of gladness upon My people. I anoint you today with the oil of gladness and I anoint your hearts today to be opened unto Me so that you can receive the fullness of My Spirit, for I am giving you this moment spiritual gifts by which you can fight the war of independence, for My church, My true church will be independent of all satanic rule. It will be independent of all man-made religion. It will be independent of all doctrines of demons, for I am the Lord God, and this morning I am revealing Myself to your hearts. That which has been spoken over your lives may come to pass if you will now reach out with the spirit of faith and embrace the presence of My anointing. I loose you this morning from all bondage of that evil government that has been against you; of all corruption that has been brought against you. I come to remove the defilement of Satan's word from you. I come to break down the lying spirits that have been sent against you. I come to break the spirits of heaviness and the spirits of bondage that he has brought. I come to break every siege mound that he has built against you to bring destruction into your land. Because I am the Lord of glory, I declare that destruction cannot come. Haven't you read that victory is assured? Have you not been spoken to along the lines of the glorious outpouring of My Spirit by which I shall set every captive free? This is the day, I say, this is the day of independence for My church! I am cutting off now those things that are behind you, and I am building a new place of habitation for your to come into where your spirit man may come up into the realm of faith and believe for those things that are before you. The past will now be sealed from you if you will but allow Me to touch your mind as I come today, as the Spirit of Deliverance, the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of Justification, the Spirit of Holiness, the Spirit of Justice, and the Spirit of Righteousness; I have come to you as the Spirit of Prayer, for I am interceding even now as I am speaking to bring you out of the realm by which you have been bound into the newness of the land I bring you. Across the Jordan I bring you--into victory I bring you. Will you not pick up the sword and come with Me? The days of glory are now being revealed to you, and that which has been spoken shall now be birthed in the earth and come forth, for I have waited as long as I am going to wait. My people have suffered as long as they are going to suffer. Now, I give a new, fresh anointing to those of you who have been wounded, to pick you up, to lift you up, so that knees that have been weak can be strengthened and the hands that have been weak can be picked up so that I can lead you from glory to glory and revelation to revelation, for I am about to come to you in unexpected ways. Yes, even surprising ways. The things that I am about to do you will wonder with wonder and astonishment about, for each of you, to the very least of you, has it not been spoken that you are greater than John the Baptist? It is for this purpose that I have come to bring forth a prophetic people, a prophetic community which will have a truly glorious, liberating cause of justice to stand for and to announce to the world. Even as My servant, David, announced, "Is there not a cause?" I say, is there not a cause? So, it must be that I must put a slingshot in your hand. It must be that I give you the stones of power so that I can send you forth to declare liberty, but first of all your spirit man must be released from the bondage of the past and all of the uncleanness that has been coming to you by way of curses must now be broken from your life. I break every curse that has been spoken against you; I do it with My own mouth. I rebuke you, Satan, with My own mouth, and I say take your hands off of My church! I say, I rebuke you in the power of My kingdom and by the word of My justice. I say unto you, you will not touch My anointed! You will NOT touch My anointed! Release them now. Let every devil that you have sent against them flee to the dry places, for it is spoken that you are walking in the realm of dryness and deadness and, therefore, take those spirits which you have sent and march them off under this order and under this decree, for I have come and I have opened the bench of the court, and the gavel of justification has fallen. I am vindicating My people and loosing them because of the blood of My righteous Son. It shall stand forever more. This decree will not go away, for it shall hold until the end. I have come today in the power of My Spirit, in the glory of My kingdom to touch each one in their heart, if you will now begin to seek Me, My people. I said, come into My rest. Open your hearts to Me now that I may touch that place that is wounded down in your spirit. Allow Me now to put My finger on the soreness of your soul. Allow Me, by My Spirit, to touch you, to bring you out, to bring you forth, to give you joy, to anoint you with the oil of gladness, for the Father comes today to restore your heart to a place of love. I break up the hardness of your heart. I break up the fallowness of your ground that is not producing a harvest. I am with My own hand now touching you, renewing you, strengthening you. I am bringing you forth in the spirit of love. My love will hold you until the end of time; it shall renew you, and it shall equip you, if you will come this moment and say Lord to Me. Cry out to Me. I said if you will cry out to Me, lift up your hearts before Me now and say, "Lord, I need the restoration of my heart. My heart has been trampled asunder; the evil one has overrun me, and he has broken through the walls I have built, but Father, today you can restore the breach in the wall with the presence of Your Spirit and with the power of Your kingdom and the glory of Your love. As You now touch me, Father, bring forth the restoration." Let this be the cry of your heart. Let it be even as My servant, David, spoke--create in me, Lord, a clean heart today, an upright spirit today-- that I might mend, that I might heal, that I might restore, that I might build up, that I might lift up, that I might give you joy in a world that has been perverse. For, I break every perverse spirit off of you now, every lying spirit from you, that you might walk in the presence and the power of My glory in the realm of joy. For, I have given you My joy--it is My strength in you manifest now to bring forth victory in your life. I would have you now to join in the brotherhood, in the gathering of the brethren. I would have you now join your hearts together, and do this this moment, casting down every vain imagination, every lie that Satan has brought against you, casting them down at the foot of the cross and standing up erect, and with your mouth make a declaration--I am free; I am FREE; I AM FREE, for the spirit of liberty has come today to set the captives free. The spirit of joy has come today to loose the captives. Let the joy of My water carry you beyond the circumstances of this world. Let the joy of My Spirit lift you into My holy presence where you are accepted by Me, received by Me, loved by Me, restored by Me, for this is My purpose in all of the earth. The war of independence is now to be fought. Even as those natural wars in the world point by types and shadows to the things that must come, first in the natural and then in the spirit, I say unto you the outcome shall be the same, for victory is assured in My kingdom. Victory will come forth. Fear not, but gather yourselves together now under the umbrella of this anointing and under the unusual outpouring of My Spirit in the liberation and the liberality of My love so that each of you may be saturated with My touch that comes by My voice today to restore you and prepare you for the war that is ahead of you. Now rise up in expectation. I say the reason that your faith has not expanded to the outer limits of My kingdom is that you do not walk in expectation. I mean expectation of what I am about to do in the very next minute; in the very next second; in the very next hour; in the very next day. Are you looking through eyes of expectation, or are you looking through eyes that are darkened by circumstances of your life? This is the opportunity that I give you today--to have eyes of expectation, that the inner man of your spirit may begin to look with expectation that it may go on a watch, a watch to see how I am about to pour out of My miraculous into your life, a watch to understand how I am about to bring forth revelation knowledge into your spirit, a watch, and I say a fast of the soul, a watch of the spirit must be so that you can receive all that I am about to give unto you. Have you not read that it is My good pleasure to give you the kingdom? If you understand the kingdom, you know that it means far more than just salvation; it means the benefits of the gifts of My Spirit that I wish to impart to you. It means My leadership and My guidance, for I have come as your Counselor. It means that I wish to walk with you as a friend, for indeed you are My friends; you are My children; you are My chosen. Have I not written that you are My priests and kings? Am I not in this moment preparing you to rule with Me and reign with Me in the liberty of My kingdom? You must understand that Mine is a kingdom of liberty. Satan's kingdom is a kingdom of restriction, but I bring you the kingdom of liberty today to enjoy the abundance of all that I desire to give unto you this moment and this day.

July 5, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Lord says, I have been reaching My hands down to take the child, but because of the condition of the child, you have not been able to give him to Me, for even Me, Myself, you do not trust. You assume that only in your own arms is that child safe. Release now to Me. Release to Me. Release to Me. Then, God can take the child; He can heal the child; He can put the child back in the person whole and restored, and then you are no longer tied to that, but the newness of His love comes forth now in the mighty name of Jesus. When He puts you back in yourself, in right order, with a heart that knows that you are loved, accepted by the Father, then this condemnation can no longer come forth.

July 5, 1998--through Marsha Burns: I had a vision of a train coming to a split in the track and having to choose one track or the other. I feel like the Lord said that you are on the track or have been on a track that is taking you farther away from the Lord because of some things that are going on in your life. Today, He is giving you the opportunity to switch tracks and take the track that will take you home again. It has to do with just making a decision to come back to the Lord and leave the things behind that have kept you away from Him--those things of personal consideration, those things that have gotten you into examining yourself and being too introspective. Those are the things you need to let go of; that's the wrong track. God is saying, I'm giving you opportunity today to get on the right track, and I'm going to bring you back home! Make the choice. Make the decision today.

July 5, 1998--through Bill Burns: I have called you a warrior after the order of Gideon. Up, I say, up out of the threshing floor. On your feet, man of God! Gird yourself, and bring forth the sword that I have put in your hand. March into battle. March into battle. March forth into the anointing of My power, for surely the victory is Mine, saith the Lord. I said, surely the victory is Mine, for if I have spoken it forth, will I not bring it forth? Why then can fear assault your soul? Why then can doubt assault your soul? Why then can unworthiness take the sword and make it dull when I have sharpened it with My own hand? Go forth, go forth, go forth into battle. The victory is Mine, saith the Lord.

July5, 1998--through Marsha Burns: The Lord also says that the enemy is going to bring opportunities for distraction and seduction to get you off the course that God has for you. You must keep your focus very clear and keep your vision clear. He has a plan and purpose for your life. Don't be distracted by the things in the world, by your own desires and wishes and plans. Keep your focus on the Lord and keep your heart fixed on Him. The devil has come to get you off course.

July 5, 1998--through Marsha Burns: The Lord is speaking to me about your heart that you just have questions in your heart. The Lord says that you don't have to identify your future. You don't have to identify what it is you are to be doing. You don't have to put a label on it. You don't have to put a letterhead on it. All you have to do is to just be led by His Spirit, and He will lead you into places that you can't even imagine that you would go because it is His Spirit and you are an empty vessel. That is what he is asking you to be at this point is an empty vessel willing to go where He says go, and willing to pour out where He says I want to pour out through you. If you will just yield to Him and let Him do His work in you, you don't have to identify or label what it is that you do. You don't have to label your gifting. He is your Gift, and you are His special treasure. He is going to be pouring out through you in various ways that He has never used you in before. He has a plan and a purpose that He can accomplish because of your obedience and yieldedness. He wants you to just yield everything that you are to Him and then He will do what He wants to do. He has found you worthy! He has found you a diamond in the rough, but you are being polished and faceted. You have more facets than you know, and you are going to reflect more light than you can possibly imagine.

July 5, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Father says, child, you have been concerned about many things, but this moment I say unto you, do not doubt the calling and do not doubt the fact that I am bringing you forth into a new role, for I have spoken to you to take up the quill and write those things which I show you. Indeed, you have begun, but I say there is a river. I say there is a river; I say there is anointing of a river of the glorious things that I am about to release through your heart, through your mind and through your spirit that it may come forth and impact a generation of believers. Come forth in the name of the Lord! Let that river arise within you and flow forth out of you like a fountain, for I am putting in you a fountain of the prophetic.

July 5, 1998--through Scott Wilke: I feel impressed to say that you got your focus on the waves and not the Lord; it was pretty much what Marsha said already, but I feel like I'm supposed to say it again. Your focus is on the waves. Focus on Him and keep it on Him because as soon as it's off Him, you're going to start to sink, but He's never going to let you go if your focus is on Him.

July 5, 1998--through Bill Burns: I have the rest of that--it's like a surfer that's on his surfboard on the ocean, and the novice surfer is watching the horizon for that wave that he wants to catch, but the experienced surfer can tell by the water beneath him as it begins to move long before that wave gets there. That water beneath you is the Lord. Get your eyes on the water and not just on that one wave that is going to carry you to freedom, but the whole body of God's living water. You will be getting a sense even beneath your feet, the moving of the undercurrents that are foretelling the coming of the waves of glory. That way you are focused on the Lord God Himself. You will know long before it gets here and then you can be ready. You will not be taken by surprise.

July 5, 1998--through Marsha Burns: Boy, as we were just speaking forth, I was speaking in this tone, and I all of a sudden wanted to say--I am so EXCITED! I AM SO EXCITED! I have such an excitement in My spirit because there is something coming. I felt like Jason and Brady, you get ready. You get ready. I'm telling you something is coming! God is going to release you in an anointing that you can't even imagine yet. It is going to be so exciting. It is going to move people into an anointed place in the Lord that you can't even imagine!!! I GET MORE EXCITED AS I THINK ABOUT IT because the excitement is in my spirit, and I just want to EXPLODE WITH EXCITEMENT because it is so awesome and mighty, and it is going to explode like the wave, like the wave of the surfer. You already feel it beneath your feet; you already feel it beneath your board. You are coming out. Hallelujah!

July 5, 1998--through Marsha Burns: The Lord is revealing to me that several of you, several of you--I would name your names, but you already know, you are going to know when I speak this--that you feel like you're just in the mud. Your feet are stuck in the mud. You're not going anywhere with the Lord. You want to, and your heart wants to, but it seems like you are dry as dust. There has not been any rain on your ground forever and ever, and you are so dry that you could cough out dust. The Lord is saying to you if you will just hang in here; He said that is your flesh speaking. He is going to pour out on you. He is going to rain on your ground so that you're not dry as dust any more. All you have to do is get out of the condemnation of thinking that YOU are dust. He is going to bring you up and fill you up, and you are going to move in the power of His Spirit like you never have. But, you need to get out of focusing on the dirt and focusing on how dry it is, and just come on up into the power of His Spirit, into the rain of the Holy Spirit--it is falling! Get in the rain. It is because you are so focused on how dirty you are and how dry you are. You are not dry at all! God has been there the whole time; He knows what's in your heart, and He's lifting you up and going to take that veil away and He's going to rain on you. Expect it! Expect it! Expect it!

July 5, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Lord says the scales shall fall from your eyes, even as they did My apostle, Paul. For, when he first met Me, were there not scales over his eyes? His heart was to serve Me; his heart was after Me; his heart was to do business on My behalf. But, there were scales over his eyes. But, when I came to him on that road in the power of My glory, I took those scales from his eyes as he sought Me with tears of repentance and fasting. They came off, and I tell you that he walked in the newness of the kingdom.

July 5, 1998--through Marsha Burns: There are others of you in here that just feel like there is so much going on in the spirit, and you feel like you are being left behind, that everybody is racing away and moving ahead, and you are still back in the same old stuff. God is saying, that is not the truth. I have a place for you; I am moving you ahead also, but don't get your eyes on other people. Don't get competitive. Don't say, well how do I measure up according to so and so. Just keep your focus on the Lord; you're doing just fine. God sees where you are; He's bringing you along too, but as long as you have your focus on other people, as long as you look at me and my ministry or Shelly and her ministry or Bill and his ministry or Marty and his ministry or anybody else, you are going to miss the ministry that God has for you because you've got your eyes on us instead of Him. Get your eyes back on Him, seek His face, seek His leading, seek His guidance, seek His direction, and have your heart right with Him. Then, He's going to move you forward in ways you can't imagine. You are not being left behind; you just haven't looked to Him for direction--you aren't looking at His face.

July 5, 1998--through Bill Burns: It is so because it is written in My word. Am I not bringing a body forth? I'm not bringing just an arm; I'm not bringing just a leg. I am bringing a body! When My body comes forth, it means all of My body, for I am not in parts. Indeed, I am the head, but I have many who are in My body. My body is coming forth. I say there will be none left out that have hearts to serve Me, for the arms shall come, and the legs shall come, and the fingers shall come, and the eyes shall come. You will be in that company of the redeemed because you are in My body. I say again, I am not coming out as an invalid. I am not coming out without legs. I am not coming out without arms. I am not coming out missing a hand. I am whole. I am the Head, and I have spoken wholeness to My body. Though some of you seem to think that you are the least, or maybe not even the least. You see yourself far less than least. If you are in My body, you are coming forth! So, get yourself ready. I said, get yourself ready for I am bringing My body forth, saith the Lord God.

July 5, 1998--through Marsha Burns: God is speaking to some or maybe all of you about rejection--that you have taken some rejective hits. The Lord says, am I not available to you to heal those places of rejection and hurt? Am I not available to you to bring you up higher? All you have to do is release this rejection to Him and keep your focus on Him. He has not rejected you. You are not rejected by the Lord; you are not rejected by the people around you. The rejection is from your own sense of inadequacy.

July 5, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Lord wants you to recognize that He has brought the spirit of prophecy and the prophetic into this place and demonstrated it to you so that the questions that you brought forth in Sunday School you have seen demonstrated first in words of wisdom, words of knowledge and then prophetically by divine utterance. If I have spoken it to you in a three-fold gift, will it not come to pass? If I have spoken it over you in a three-fold manner, is not that cord strong and will it not hold up in My kingdom? For I am the Lord of glory, the Lord of hosts, the Lord of the treasure, and I give you treasures of deep places today. I have demonstrated that to you through the word that has come and through the compassion of My heart and by the voice of My Spirit. It, therefore, remains for you to walk in the newness of it and watch it spring forth, for surely it shall.

July 5, 1998--through Marsha Burns: God is also speaking in relation to rejection; He is also talking about insecurity. Some of you have gotten yourselves in a place of insecurity, of not feeling secure in the Lord. He is just speaking, is He not your provider? Hasn't He always provided? Hasn't He always been there? Hasn't He always brought what you needed? Your insecurity, again, is a lie from the enemy which you must reject and leave behind. Let God be your security. You are secure in the arms of the Lord.

July 5, 1998--through Bill Burns: But, you are saying, that was because I was young and that was because I was strong and that was because I had abilities of my own. Now, I am getting older and my body is not responding in the way it should, in fact it is not responding in the way that it used to. But, I say, am I not able to touch you? If I am the Father of creation and the Father of regeneration, can't I pour My Spirit of regeneration and strength out for you and restore the years that the locusts of these life times, the locusts of infirmity have eaten? Can I not bring forth power and strength? And I have even given you types in My scripture, for My servant, Moses, walked forth with a strong step, and his countenance was still full of the glory of My presence. He was not weak, and his eyes were not dim, and he was not any more special than you are. So, rise up in a place of faith today and believe that I am going to restore My body. I brought them out of Egypt, and I brought them out whole, and I brought them out with provision, and I am bringing you forth in newness of life! I say, I have brought you out and delivered you out of Egypt, and these last few months, I have been taking Egypt out of your hearts so that you can believe that you are free and so that you will know that you don't have to go back to the place of security that the stewpot represented. You don't have to go back into bondage for the sake of security, for I am leading you to places that you have never been before--into the pastures of My refreshing in the life and the glory that is Mine to give.

The Lord says, surely the river is flowing and I say it is not a small measure. It is not that measure which only comes up to your toes. I say, it is deeper than your ankles and your knees. I say it is over your head. Get in the water, and let the life that I have given you flow forth. Get in the water and be renewed. Get in the water and be refreshed. Get in the water and be healed. Get in the water and be delivered, for I am the living Lamb of God who has brought forth the rain, the latter rain of My Spirit upon this people because you have asked, because you have desired and because you have sought after Me. I cannot deny a yearning heart and a heart that has a desire to do all of My will. So, I come today to declare to you that the river is flowing. Get in the river. Get in the river. I say cast away your canoes. I say cast away your boats. I say throw those paddles away. Get rid of the life preservers, for I am in charge of the currents of this stream. They are deep, but I will carry you forth in the light and the glory of the place that I am bringing you.

 

July 3, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: For the Lord says, I am bringing you forth for such a time as this, but there are yet many of you laboring to enter My rest. I said you are still laboring to enter My rest. Let Me tell you why you have not entered in fully. It is written that many follow Jesus from afar. You cannot stand far off from me and receive the presence of My power, but you must come close. I say come in under the cloud. Get in the cloud; come close to the fire. Do not stand off at a distance, for Satan's weapons of destruction keep you at a distance. It is his weapon that is formed against you, the weapon of unworthiness that keeps you at arms length, that keeps you outside the camp, that keeps you at a distance, and therefore, you are not entering in because you feel you are unworthy to enter in. I say you can enter in based on the power of My shed blood alone and for no other reason. If you will come forth into the realm of My presence because the Son of God has died and shed His blood for you--that is your entrance into the cloud and into the fire and into the realm of glory. That is all that is required except for your obedience to come, for I issue a word for you today and say come and enter My rest, for I say the days ahead of you will be terrific, and they will terrible. In those days you shall need much endurance. So, I am giving you this time of preparation and calling to each one, and I say again, enter My rest. Enter into My rest. ENTER INTO MY REST! Let the strength of My power come upon you and renew you and encourage you and edify you and exhort you and build you up in the realm of the Spirit where you can indeed be a warrior who wars in spirit and in truth.

 

June 28, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: This is what God is saying...I am now building My temple with living stones, formed and fitted together perfectly for a habitation of My Spirit. My purpose is to fill that temple with My glory, My Shekinah glory, a glory that you have not yet experienced, a glory so powerful that it will bring forth My manifestation in this world, as it is spoken through the mouths of My prophets, that will bring My judgment to a completion. This you must know, that no unclean thing is going to enter My temple until I am finished bringing forth the judgment upon My people, and when I finish bringing forth judgment on My people, then others will be given the opportunity to come, but not until the judgment is completed; not until the plagues are completed; not until I pour out the manifestation of My blessing in the camp of the true worshipers that bring forth the spirit of justice and the spirit of burning into the hearts of those who are backslidden, those who are apostate in this world. And, when My word comes forth from the fire of My Spirit, which I have imparted to mankind, the torch of the fire that cleanses the very atmosphere that they walk through, the judgment shall come to a completion, and then the temple that has been opened for the world itself to see will be able to receive the manifestation of the sons of glory and those that are yet on the way to that place. It will not happen, I say, until My judgment is complete. (Note: This word is speaking of the judgment of God that is coming upon the luke-warm church and must come before the great harvest will be released to come into the temple of God. The church in its present condition cannot contain the glory of God. Revelation 15:8, "The Temple was filled with smoke from God's glory and power. No one could enter the Temple until the seven angels had completed pouring out the seven plagues.")

 

June 23, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: For the Spirit of the Lord says, "Come up higher, My eagles. Do not let the tormentor slow you down. Do not allow accusation to cause you to change your course. Spread your wings and soar to new heights, come up into My presence, into My face, far above the cares of the world. Come into My heavenly sanctuary where the enemy cannot follow. Hurry! Times of refreshing await you. Times of joyful fellowship await. Come to this place of Mine that we might soar together in the kingdom of My Father, for you see, I am also an eagle! Isaiah 40:31, "But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."

 

June 19, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: The Sovereign Lord says, there will be many battles that will come. I said there will be many battles that come your way. Understand and know that I will give you victory in each of them, but do not act in presumption and think that each one will be the same. For tonight, even by the demonstration of My Spirit, I have shown you that the battle was different. The battle was a different battle than you are used to, but I say it is the same Lord who defeats all. And, yea, you are My battle axes, but the battle belongs to the Lord. So, it must be, My people, as you enter each battle you must seek Me for the direction of that battle, and you must also seek Me that I might reveal to you the enemy, for he has hidden himself in secret places, and he moves within the shadows and the darkness. But, I say, I always know his whereabouts, and I know the stumbling stones he has set, and I know the snares that he has set, and I know those traps that he has put before you. Understand that from now until the end of time it is the battle of the Lord. Yes, there will be many battles, but the same Lord. There will be many battles but the same enemy. I say unto you, the saints shall be victorious. I can say assuredly that it will be My battle. I am the same Lord, for I am the same today as I was yesterday and the same as I shall be forever. I am the Lord of victory. I said the enemy will be the same and I will be the same, but My army will not be the same, for it shall be that some grow weary along the way. Some will withdraw themselves from the battle. It is for each of you to choose whether you will carry the sword of My Spirit, whether you will engage the enemy, or whether you shall flee and hide from his face. I am walking among you to cause you to be warriors--triumphant warriors--warriors who walk in the realm of the anointing and the power. There shall be nothing that comes against you that shall hurt you, for behold, I give you power! I give you power to walk over all the devices of the enemy. I have been speaking to you that I give you power. I have been encouraging you to rise up and war against the enemy, for he is not an enemy who is too strong for you, but he is in fact much weaker than you perceive. I said he is weaker than you perceive! For, when you find yourself in Me, and when you find My strength in you, you shall know that the enemy is already defeated. Two thousand years ago on a cross on Calvary I defeated him and My blood has been against him from that time forth. He cannot come against the blood in victory, for I say that you have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony. Now, go forth into this battle and into the different battles that are before you, but go with expectation of victory for each one, and seek Me for My plans. Surely, I have a battle plan, and I will reveal that plan to you if you will but ask Me. I shall go before you, and the enemy shall be defeated!

June 14, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: The Spirit of the Lord would say this morning, are these not My words? Behold, I give you power? Is it not written that I would give you power? It is indeed written and not only will I give you power that comes forth in the realm of the glory, but I give you authority to tread over all the works of the enemy for this is My purpose and for this purpose I came--to destroy the works of the enemy. Indeed, I am now bringing forth the spirit of justice, the spirit of burning, the spirit of My fire, the spirit of vindication, for My kingdom shall be honored in all the earth. The scoffers and the mockers shall be forced to bow down before My glory, and they shall be forced to bow before the proclamation--the words that come out of the mouths of my servants, for this is My purpose in all of the earth, to restore the things that have been taken captive and the things that have been locked away by the enemy. But, I come in this moment, in this hour, and in this day to call forth the saints of faith--those who believe that the spirit of burning and the spirit of judgment is now entering into a new dimension within the realm of anointing--that which My Spirit giveth, saith the Lord. It is now My purpose to bring forth the manifestation of the sons of glory, and out of their mouths shall come prophetic utterances, and I will fulfill the words of their mouths. I say unto you, none of them shall fall to the ground, for it must occur now that the enemy of their souls be defeated, for I am the Lord of victory.

June 7, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: Watch and behold, for the things that I said I would do, surely I will do them. For this is indeed the year of Jubilee, and some of you have been struggling with My promises. But, as My word comes in truth and in power, it shall indeed impact the very center of your being, for it is My desire that My people be a flame of fire, that they be set on fire by the Holy Spirit. It is My desire that the living word of God be shut up in your bones and cause such a powerful anointing that it will impact every arena that you go into, for this is My will, saith the Lord. Are these not, indeed, the last days? And, have I not said in the last days there shall be rumors of war? I say unto you the rumors of war are about to come upon you. As you go forth to contend in the power and glory of His majesty, those things that you have heard today by way of rumor will become an actuality. Do not fear, for the Lord your God shall be with you, even to the end of the age. I do not send My people out lest I go with them, lest I empower them, lest I teach their hands to make war. Let the enemy be defeated because I am doing a mighty work in the earth, and all of this world shall receive the revelation that indeed, I am still the Most High God, and their idols shall fall. The gods of the New Age shall crumble. The gods of the apostate ones shall give way to the Spirit of truth and power. I say go forth in strength; go forth in power. Walk in faith. Go, My children, into this earth and proclaim with victory the power of your God, for He is indeed with you. (Note: The rumors of war had to do with the message preached about the war between the apostate church and the true church. That can be heard on our Audio Page, The Sixth Trumpet.)  

May 31, 1998--through Bill Burns: For the Lord says, surely these are the days in which I am gathering My eagles together. I say again, have I not chosen this the time of the year of Pentecost when the wind blows to form a group of eagles, those that I have been stirring up for the past two months, those that I have been moving, those that I have been desiring to reveal Myself to? I say unto you, it is time for the eagles to spread their wings, for they are yet earth bound. But, as they spread their wings, I shall be the wind beneath their wings, and I shall lift them toward heaven. I will bring them up to live in the glory of the kingdom that they ought to be living in, even in this hour and even in this day. For, once I begin to move, by My breath I shall lift them up into My face, into My presence and into My peace and into My joy. I will restore the years that have been torn away by Satan's ravaging against the church, for this is My purpose and this is My will in all of the earth--that My people should spread now their wings and let them arise into My presence under the shadow of the Almighty where all things become perfect in their lives. My desire in perfection is to show you My character and to show you My nature and to reveal Myself to you that you might be strengthened in the inner man and might come up from the place and position that you are bound to in the earth and dwell among the heavenly places where the winds of My Spirit bring you. I say unto you, on the voice of the wind comes My revelation knowledge, and I am about to reveal that revelation knowledge to many in this earth today. For, I say, it is time and that day has fully come.

 

May 24, 1998--through Bill Burns: For the Lord of Glory would say to you today, am I not the King of Glory? I say unto you, not only am I the King of Glory, but I am the mighty One who has come to deliver you. I am the Lord of the breakthrough. I said, I am the Lord of the breakthrough. I am the Lord of the breakthrough, and if you will break through into the inner room and be caught up before My throne, I assure you that the promises that I have spoken in My word shall come upon you, and My saints shall arise in glory and manifest My presence that all the world itself may see it. And, I say unto you today, that the devils are already trembling, for they know in fact that this is taking place in the realm of the heavenlies, for they have noticed the angelic visitations, and they have noticed the preparations by which I am coming to do a new thing in the earth, saith the Lord. That new thing is to break through on your behalf, to cause you to break through into the glory. For when you break through into the glory, I say the glory of My kingdom will be manifest in you, and when the glory of My kingdom is manifest in you, the earth itself will see the shining example of the sons of God Almighty, the sons of glory, and I say they shall desire to be as you are, even as you have desired to be like the Son of Glory, My glorious Son who comes to you today with healing in His wings, to prepare your minds and to regenerate and renew your minds that you might once again believe that I am who I say I am and I will do what I said I will do in this day, in this time and even in this hour.

 

May 18, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Father's Handmaidens: Today I was made aware of an intense attack against God's prophetic handmaidens. This awareness comes in the realm of the spirit as the Holy Spirit quickened to my spirit that Satan has targeted all prophetic handmaidens (ministers, intercessors, psalmists, prophetesses and apostolic leaders). Ladies, you are under attack by Satan who is now using every possible means (including people) to bring discouragement, confusion and sickness (by way of curses) against you. Here is the reason: Because the Spirit of the Lord has raised up some very bold and powerful handmaidens, and many other formerly oppressed women are beginning to catch the vision that they too can be used by the Father.

For the Spirit of the Lord says, I am doing a new thing in the land, yes a surprising thing, a thing that has never before been done. Thus, says the Holy One, a multitude of new and prophetic handmaidens are about to be birthed into the Kingdom. Many will now be added to the Army of the Lord. This, My beloved handmaidens, is why you are now under attack, for you have been the forerunners in the type of John the Baptist. You have prepared the way, you have opened the door of My spiritual kingdom to My precious ones that will now come forth, and I say a multitude will now follow in your footsteps. I say also, woe to those who have cooperated with Satan's demon spirits and have persecuted My beloved handmaidens, for I Myself will come with the terrible swift sword of judgment against those who abuse My handmaidens, and I say, touch not My anointed!

To My precious handmaidens, I say well done, My beloved; do not allow this last onslaught of the enemy to discourage you. Stand strong; set your spirit ablaze with My glory; raise the standard high. For many are coming to rally around you. Thus says the Lord, I have given you a prophetic voice of power. Discouragement has caused some of you to become silent. Break the silence now. Do you not know that Satan fears the power of your voice? For surely, it is the voice of My Spirit.

 

May 17, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Lord says that you are at Ziklag, a place of bending. He says, I am testing your faith; I am testing the function of your will and the purpose and intensity of your heart to persevere in all things so that you can attain to the victory. Don't stop at this place; don't give up at this place. Do not be offended, but strengthen yourself in the Lord God Almighty. Inquire of Me, and I will show you the way out.

 

May 10, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Spirit of the Lord said that many Jonathans are about to die at the hands of the enemy because they are in the wrong camp. (See Item #5 on the What's Up page.)

 

May 8, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: I am in your midst, reaching out to you. I am longing to know your love that overflows towards Me. I am longing to speak to you. I am longing to walk in fellowship with you. I am longing to reveal the mysteries of My kingdom to you. I am longing to set you free. I am longing to bring you to higher places. I am longing to give you victory over the enemy But, you would not come forth in the realm of faith and the realm of expectation. You continue to walk through the valley of the shadow of death. There is no hope except in Me and Me alone, and if you do not recognize Me in this walk, how shall I come forth, and how shall I lead you out? By what path shall I bring you? By the path of self-pity? I say NO, but by the path of faith alone. That is the only path that works in this kingdom of Mine. I have already spoken to you that I desire to give you the gifts of the kingdom. They are Mine to give, and I desire to give those gifts, but I cannot give those gifts to those who will not believe or those who will not walk in faith or those who will not persevere or those who will not press toward the mark of the high calling in Me or those who will not leave the past behind. I say unto you, you will continue in your defeat and you will not find victory, for there is nothing but death in your past. Life is before you, for I am leading you and guiding you into all of the law of life and liberty, and I have said that I would never leave you nor forsake you, but you must stand up and follow. That is why I have written in My Word to lift up the hands that hang down and strengthen the knees that are weak. Stand before Me and walk with Me, for indeed these are the days of all things coming to the place of restoration in My kingdom. When you stand in that final company, you will realize how many things you missed because you would not--you would not come in faith; you allowed the spirit of death to hold you. You will say to Me then, "But, Lord, Lord, if you had intervened." But, I say unto you, haven't I given you authority? Haven't I given you power? Haven't I given you the words of life and the blood of life? Haven't I given you the sword of the Spirit? But, will you use it? I say NO. But, why? I have revealed Myself to you; I have nurtured you; I have put My words into you; I have carried you even in your weakness. Now when I say it is time to walk by faith, you complain and you murmur. You complain of the hardships, and you harden your heart, and you say, it's too hard, Lord, it's too hard. How will you then run with the horsemen if these foot soldiers that Satan has sent against you have wearied you? How then will you run with the horsemen? There is only one way, and that is yet by faith and by faith alone. I have obtained the victory, and it is yours, but victory comes to those who are strong of faith and strong of heart. Defeat comes to the weak and to those that would not because they became weary along the way. I say, come up! I say, come up! I say, get up. I say, follow the examples that the Apostle Paul gave you, for when he was stoned and knocked down, did he stay down? When he was whipped, did he give in? When he was shipwrecked, did he give up and drown in the sea? I say he did not! I say, My apostles, and I am calling you to be My apostles and My prophets to go forth and to give review to the world of the glory that rests upon My kingdom and the mantle of authority and the anointing that I desire to pour out upon you. Would you not stand up? I say, would you not stand up and receive the anointing and receive the precious ointment of old that runs from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet. Will you not bring forth the words of victory from your very own mouth? Will you not use the name of Jesus, for I have given it to you to use liberally? The blood of the Lamb of God has obtained the victory for you. Will you not assault the enemy of your soul and declare that he is a defeated foe? He is defeated because I have defeated him, and I have also given you the voice of victory and the voice of life. I give you strength now. Will you not declare the victory? If you do not declare the victory, how will you obtain the victory? If victory is not within you, how can it come forth? If you do not believe the victory will manifest itself, how shall I be able to bring it forth in your life?

 

May 5, 1998--through Bill Burns: On this day my question before the Lord was, "What, Lord, what? What is this heaviness, this whirlwind that seems to bring chaotic conditions and uncertainty? A time, Lord when it seems I must remain very quiet to maintain my peace, a time when I just want to hide and watch, for my soul is restless, and my spirit is diquieted within me." And this was His answer to me: Tell My children that this is the time of renewal from the washing of the blood and water to the washing of the wind and fire. In this visitation I am cleansing My bride. I am preparing her for the greatest of all Jubilees. Listen now, and My Spirit shall teach you concerning the times and seasons that My children are now experiencing, for from the coming forth of the Passover in this year of Jubilee to the celebration of Pentecost, I am restoring My church. I am restoring the revelation of the power of My blood that will be birthed into the hearts of the quiet ones, and it shall come with the wind and fire of Pentecost. It must be so, for the first order of My Jubilee is to forgive every debt of sin and set every slave free that they may possess the land of their inheritance. These years of 50 are also represented in the days of 50 from Passover to Pentecost, and it shall be again at the end as it was in the beginning. For it was like this with the beginning of My church. For forty days after My blood was shed, I taught My apostles of the things of the kingdom of My Father, and then I sent them into an upper room to wait for My promise. Once again, My children, you must be taught according to the power of My resurrection life, the power of the resurrection life begins with the power of My blood to cleanse and bring forth forgiveness and then comes the wind and fire of Pentecost to establish the authority of My shed blood. If My children shall seek this revelation, every bondage will now be broken, and resurrection life will spring forth. Refuse to sow to the flesh in these times of whirlwinds. Instead, let My wind remove from you the old things and refuse to sow to the winds of self-consciousness that Satan is bringing. It is now time to discern between My cleansing wind and Satan's winds of adversity. If you are to do this, you must also find your place in the upper room in order to survive the storms of the evil one. Know this--My church would not have survived Satan's storms if they had not been sent into the safe harbor of the upper room to wait for the power that would give them the victory over the enemy of their soul. Set your course now; face into the wind. Surely My wind is blowing now. Watch for the fire, and when you see it, declare with all of your might that it is the Lord's Jubilee.

May 31, 1998--through Bill Burns: For the Lord says, surely these are the days in which I am gathering My eagles together. I say again, have I not chosen this the time of the year of Pentecost when the wind blows to form a group of eagles, those that I have been stirring up for the past two months, those that I have been moving, those that I have been desiring to reveal Myself to? I say unto you, it is time for the eagles to spread their wings, for they are yet earth bound. But, as they spread their wings, I shall be the wind beneath their wings, and I shall lift them toward heaven. I will bring them up to live in the glory of the kingdom that they ought to be living in, even in this hour and even in this day. For, once I begin to move, by My breath I shall lift them up into My face, into My presence and into My peace and into My joy. I will restore the years that have been torn away by Satan's ravaging against the church, for this is My purpose and this is My will in all of the earth--that My people should spread now their wings and let them arise into My presence under the shadow of the Almighty where all things become perfect in their lives. My desire in perfection is to show you My character and to show you My nature and to reveal Myself to you that you might be strengthened in the inner man and might come up from the place and position that you are bound to in the earth and dwell among the heavenly places where the winds of My Spirit bring you. I say unto you, on the voice of the wind comes My revelation knowledge, and I am about to reveal that revelation knowledge to many in this earth today. For, I say, it is time and that day has fully come.

 

May 24, 1998--through Bill Burns: For the Lord of Glory would say to you today, am I not the King of Glory? I say unto you, not only am I the King of Glory, but I am the mighty One who has come to deliver you. I am the Lord of the breakthrough. I said, I am the Lord of the breakthrough. I am the Lord of the breakthrough, and if you will break through into the inner room and be caught up before My throne, I assure you that the promises that I have spoken in My word shall come upon you, and My saints shall arise in glory and manifest My presence that all the world itself may see it. And, I say unto you today, that the devils are already trembling, for they know in fact that this is taking place in the realm of the heavenlies, for they have noticed the angelic visitations, and they have noticed the preparations by which I am coming to do a new thing in the earth, saith the Lord. That new thing is to break through on your behalf, to cause you to break through into the glory. For when you break through into the glory, I say the glory of My kingdom will be manifest in you, and when the glory of My kingdom is manifest in you, the earth itself will see the shining example of the sons of God Almighty, the sons of glory, and I say they shall desire to be as you are, even as you have desired to be like the Son of Glory, My glorious Son who comes to you today with healing in His wings, to prepare your minds and to regenerate and renew your minds that you might once again believe that I am who I say I am and I will do what I said I will do in this day, in this time and even in this hour.

 

May 18, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Father's Handmaidens: Today I was made aware of an intense attack against God's prophetic handmaidens. This awareness comes in the realm of the spirit as the Holy Spirit quickened to my spirit that Satan has targeted all prophetic handmaidens (ministers, intercessors, psalmists, prophetesses and apostolic leaders). Ladies, you are under attack by Satan who is now using every possible means (including people) to bring discouragement, confusion and sickness (by way of curses) against you. Here is the reason: Because the Spirit of the Lord has raised up some very bold and powerful handmaidens, and many other formerly oppressed women are beginning to catch the vision that they too can be used by the Father.

For the Spirit of the Lord says, I am doing a new thing in the land, yes a surprising thing, a thing that has never before been done. Thus, says the Holy One, a multitude of new and prophetic handmaidens are about to be birthed into the Kingdom. Many will now be added to the Army of the Lord. This, My beloved handmaidens, is why you are now under attack, for you have been the forerunners in the type of John the Baptist. You have prepared the way, you have opened the door of My spiritual kingdom to My precious ones that will now come forth, and I say a multitude will now follow in your footsteps. I say also, woe to those who have cooperated with Satan's demon spirits and have persecuted My beloved handmaidens, for I Myself will come with the terrible swift sword of judgment against those who abuse My handmaidens, and I say, touch not My anointed!

To My precious handmaidens, I say well done, My beloved; do not allow this last onslaught of the enemy to discourage you. Stand strong; set your spirit ablaze with My glory; raise the standard high. For many are coming to rally around you. Thus says the Lord, I have given you a prophetic voice of power. Discouragement has caused some of you to become silent. Break the silence now. Do you not know that Satan fears the power of your voice? For surely, it is the voice of My Spirit.

 

May 17, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Lord says that you are at Ziklag, a place of bending. He says, I am testing your faith; I am testing the function of your will and the purpose and intensity of your heart to persevere in all things so that you can attain to the victory. Don't stop at this place; don't give up at this place. Do not be offended, but strengthen yourself in the Lord God Almighty. Inquire of Me, and I will show you the way out.

 

May 10, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Spirit of the Lord said that many Jonathans are about to die at the hands of the enemy because they are in the wrong camp. (See Item #5 on the What's Up page.)

 

May 8, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: I am in your midst, reaching out to you. I am longing to know your love that overflows towards Me. I am longing to speak to you. I am longing to walk in fellowship with you. I am longing to reveal the mysteries of My kingdom to you. I am longing to set you free. I am longing to bring you to higher places. I am longing to give you victory over the enemy But, you would not come forth in the realm of faith and the realm of expectation. You continue to walk through the valley of the shadow of death. There is no hope except in Me and Me alone, and if you do not recognize Me in this walk, how shall I come forth, and how shall I lead you out? By what path shall I bring you? By the path of self-pity? I say NO, but by the path of faith alone. That is the only path that works in this kingdom of Mine. I have already spoken to you that I desire to give you the gifts of the kingdom. They are Mine to give, and I desire to give those gifts, but I cannot give those gifts to those who will not believe or those who will not walk in faith or those who will not persevere or those who will not press toward the mark of the high calling in Me or those who will not leave the past behind. I say unto you, you will continue in your defeat and you will not find victory, for there is nothing but death in your past. Life is before you, for I am leading you and guiding you into all of the law of life and liberty, and I have said that I would never leave you nor forsake you, but you must stand up and follow. That is why I have written in My Word to lift up the hands that hang down and strengthen the knees that are weak. Stand before Me and walk with Me, for indeed these are the days of all things coming to the place of restoration in My kingdom. When you stand in that final company, you will realize how many things you missed because you would not--you would not come in faith; you allowed the spirit of death to hold you. You will say to Me then, "But, Lord, Lord, if you had intervened." But, I say unto you, haven't I given you authority? Haven't I given you power? Haven't I given you the words of life and the blood of life? Haven't I given you the sword of the Spirit? But, will you use it? I say NO. But, why? I have revealed Myself to you; I have nurtured you; I have put My words into you; I have carried you even in your weakness. Now when I say it is time to walk by faith, you complain and you murmur. You complain of the hardships, and you harden your heart, and you say, it's too hard, Lord, it's too hard. How will you then run with the horsemen if these foot soldiers that Satan has sent against you have wearied you? How then will you run with the horsemen? There is only one way, and that is yet by faith and by faith alone. I have obtained the victory, and it is yours, but victory comes to those who are strong of faith and strong of heart. Defeat comes to the weak and to those that would not because they became weary along the way. I say, come up! I say, come up! I say, get up. I say, follow the examples that the Apostle Paul gave you, for when he was stoned and knocked down, did he stay down? When he was whipped, did he give in? When he was shipwrecked, did he give up and drown in the sea? I say he did not! I say, My apostles, and I am calling you to be My apostles and My prophets to go forth and to give review to the world of the glory that rests upon My kingdom and the mantle of authority and the anointing that I desire to pour out upon you. Would you not stand up? I say, would you not stand up and receive the anointing and receive the precious ointment of old that runs from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet. Will you not bring forth the words of victory from your very own mouth? Will you not use the name of Jesus, for I have given it to you to use liberally? The blood of the Lamb of God has obtained the victory for you. Will you not assault the enemy of your soul and declare that he is a defeated foe? He is defeated because I have defeated him, and I have also given you the voice of victory and the voice of life. I give you strength now. Will you not declare the victory? If you do not declare the victory, how will you obtain the victory? If victory is not within you, how can it come forth? If you do not believe the victory will manifest itself, how shall I be able to bring it forth in your life?

Instead, let My wind remove from you the old things and refuse to sow to the winds of self-consciousness that Satan is bringing. It is now time to discern between My cleansing wind and Satan's winds of adversity. If you are to do this, you must also find your place in the upper room in order to survive the storms of the evil one. Know this--My church would not have survived Satan's storms if they had not been sent into the safe harbor of the upper room to wait for the power that would give them the victory over the enemy of their soul. Set your course now; face into the wind. Surely My wind is blowing now. Watch for the fire, and when you see it, declare with all of your might that it is the Lord's Jubilee.

 

April 24, 1998--through Bill Burns: Is this not My house? I ask you a question tonight. Is this not My house? Am I not here in presence? Have I not come to anoint you to be an overcomer? I am here to set you free, but this I ask of you--stop. I say stop; I say it again stop looking on the external conditions. Stop looking upon your circumstances. Stop looking at the hindrances. Start looking upon Me, for in Me all things are possible, and My ability and My power shall bring you through. And, the Lord says let go of all your expectations, your desires for the things of the world, for many of you get into anxiety because you have formed expectations for yourself and for others and for the circumstances that are around you. Leave that to Me. Put your expectation upon Me, and I will perform all that you need.

 

April 24, 1998--through Bill Burns: I have been seeing a door (I want you to get into the Spirit with me and see if this is for you and see what God wants to show you). I keep seeing an open door for you to go through. That means opportunities--an open door that no man can close, that Satan cannot close. It represents opportunity; it represents His direction; it represents an opportunity to come to a higher place and to know Him face to face. The Lord says some of you have been sitting at My feet, but I would now have you stand before Me face to face that you may look upon My countenance and know the glory realm that I am opening unto you. I am giving you open doors in the natural that will be opportunities to come to the station that I have called you to, opportunities to receive the employment that I am opening for you, opportunities to receive the provision that is necessary, but I am also opening opportunities in the realm of the Spirit for you to come up higher...open doors into My presence, open doors into My glory, open doors! For, surely, this is the year of Jubilee and it is in this year that I open the doors of the Kingdom of Heaven and pour out My blessings upon My people.

 

April 17, 1998--through Bill Burns: For the Spirit of the Living God would say, I have come to show you the Father's love. For if you knew the Father's heart you would not tremble, not in weakness, but in His strength. You would not submit to fear for you would know that He is for you. It would be to your advantage, then, to gain access to the Father's heart so that you would know the way in which He is leading you; so that you would know the way in which He is preparing the way that He has for you and you alone. Each of you is made in the Father's image, but I say unto you each of you is yet different. Thus, the heart of the Father is extended to each one, and He wants each one to understand your identity in Him. He also wants each to understand that you are made unlike any other that He may have fellowship with and appreciation for and enjoyment with you just as you are. Would you let go of every other thing that is holding you at this moment, and say, "Lord, just as I am, I come--just as I am, I come to know Your love, to know Your acceptance, to know the reality of Your touch, to know and feel the presence of Your power in my life, Lord God; that I might walk as the Apostle did knowing that I am dead to the world but alive unto Christ, alive unto His touch, alive unto His voice, alive unto His leading, and then behold I go bound in the love of the Father."

April 12, 1998--through Bill Burns: The Lord God says My wrath will not be withheld again. I am the Lord of Glory, and do you not think that I am coming to judge the world? Do you not think that I have already seen what you do in your bedrooms and those places of disgrace? Don't you know that I already know your thoughts? Don't you know that I already know the deceit of your hearts and your minds? Don't you know that I know that you are playing the harlot? I know the things that you are up to. Don't I understand the wickedness that you are thinking and those things that you are not doing that are in accordance with My word? The Lord says He knows those places in us today, and He knows the condition of our hearts. His word is telling us to draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.


April 12, 1998--through Bill Burns: Some of you have played the harlot; you have come dancing into My house, but I say unto you, I know your hearts. I have seen your lustings after the Assyrians; I have seen your lustings after the young men mounted on the horses--those that are bound to the world. I have seen your lustings after the things of the world, and I shall not tolerate it in My house any more, for it is written that My house is a house of prayer. My house is about to reveal the glory of the Son, resurrected and risen in all of His glory. But, to some of you, I would say you have left your first Love. Do you think that I do not have eyes to see? I have seen the lustings; I have seen the betrayals. I have even seen the attitudes of your hearts. I know from whence you have come, and I know the places to which you are going. Do you not think that I could call you one by one and expose your sins in this congregation today? But, I say I will not because I am a God of grace. So, I give you a time of preparation whereby you can examine your own hearts and whereby you can come before My throne with repentance in your hearts casting your sincerity upon the blood of My Son, for He has shed His blood for the salvation of all. Some of you are running from your past life; there are things that are hidden, things that are over you that cause you to walk with trembling and fear. For some, the devil has come to promote his spirit of death and to seduce you into the lake of everlasting destruction. To some he has come as a seducing spirit to lead you away from the ones that you ought to love and the one that you do love, but yet in your heart there is desire--a selfishness. I speak to you today with clarity. I could speak to you about the pornographic materials that are hidden there in your house. I could talk to you about the thoughts of your mind in the midnight hour. I could speak those things out in this place, but again, I say I shall not for I am the God of grace; I am the God of mercy. But, I say this--the day is coming shortly that I will no longer tolerate the sins that you continue in. I will no longer tolerate the doubts and the unbelief and the attitudes of rebellion against Me, for I am the Lord of the universe, the King of Glory, and all things are under My control. Have I not created the earth that you walk upon? Have I not even taken the dust from that earth and birthed forth by My breath your existence into this place? Whether you believe that you are My children or not, yet you are! I said, yet you are! You did not form yourself. You did not come into this earth by your own volition, by your own will, by your own strength, or your own power. You came because I, the Lord of Glory, created you to be instruments of praise. I created you to be My children. I created you that you might walk with Me in fellowship, and that you might know your God, for I am preparing a kingdom for you that you will live in eternally if you so choose to serve Me. If you choose not to serve Me, then let him who is wicked remain wicked, but let the righteous remain righteous. That day is upon us, and surely that day will come with fire and you shall behold the wrath of your God, for am I not the God of kindness and severity? I am not only a God of kindness, for I cannot tolerate sin. I disdain the things that you are doing. I disdain the thing that you have allowed Satan to bring into your life. I hate the sin that you have allowed to come and corrupt creation, for I am a God of holiness, and I have spoken in My word that you shall serve Me also with holiness, for I am the God of life. I say today, beware of the times that are before you and those things that are coming upon the earth. I say that you need to prepare yourselves in righteousness; you need to prepare yourselves for the things that are coming, for judgment is coming upon this earth because rebellion and iniquity abound in this place. Again, I say I am the God of mercy, so I say this with an element of time that you might reconsider the things that you are doing. Understand this--My eyes are watching you; My Spirit knows the things you are doing. This is the day of recompense that you may be reconciled to Me if you desire, and I am inviting you to come before My throne with boldness in your heart to declare the victory. I, the God of Glory, come in love to chasten My people today.

 

April 10, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: As we were worshipping about ten minutes ago, the Lord showed me, He said this is the reason that My people don't always receive healing is because they don't understand this aspect. He showed me His back, and in the spirit I could see His shoulders, and I could see His flesh torn from His back. It was dark, it was bloody; there was congealed blood, but then all of a sudden between His shoulder blades I began to see a light. I couldn't understand the light because it was dark; there was darkness--He had taken our sicknesses upon Him. I said, Lord, what is the light? He said, it is My heart. It is My heart; it is My heart that My people be healed. It's My heart that My people be touched. It is the light of the world, and when you anoint in the name of the Lord, it's that light of My heart that comes through to touch. When you anoint the people, it is My light that comes through the oil; it is My light that touches; it is My light that comes upon them; it is My light that brings the healing because it is the light of My heart that is My love that is shining through the darkness. I took those stripes for that one reason. After I saw Him in that position, I saw Him on the cross--He was turned around, but it was the same light of His heart that was shining through. His heart--it is His heart! It is His heart to heal. The Spirit of the Lord says no longer will the evil one hold My people in bondage. No longer will the evil one destroy My people. No longer will disease cling to their flesh. I say that this is a new day, and no longer will death haunt you. No longer will the jackals rip at you. I am revealing Myself as the Son of Man and the Son of God. I am revealing Myself to your hearts this moment that you might BELIEVE that the resurrection power of My glory is here, and I have chosen this year to pour it out among My people--THOSE WHO WILL BELIEVE. I say that I am the Resurrection and the Life. I said I am the Resurrection and the Life. Death is defeated; death can no longer destroy you. The grave has no power over you, and disease cannot haunt you, for I say unto you this moment, the word of the Lamb of God has been sent forth into this world under a fresh anointing of My love, and My people shall come out of Egypt in strength, each one of them being healed. They shall come out possessing the land, for it is Mine to give, and surely I bring it forth.



April 5, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: Be still and listen, My children, for if with spiritual ears you can hear, there is a howling of the wolves. There is a joining together now in the realm of the spirit of the ungodly powers of darkness that are joining themselves to the flesh of mankind. It can be called the curse of the jackals, for they have come to rip and to tear at you and to bring forth blood and to bring forth destruction in your life, but I say unto you, it shall not stand. It shall not prevail. For, am I not the Lord of glory? Have I not spoken to you in times past that no weapon formed against you would prosper and every weapon formed against you would be pulled down? You, with your own voice, will speak against this howling. They have come and they have howled and have joined themselves together across the valleys and across the mountains; they have turned the moon from bright to red because it is now a blood moon that hangs over the spiritual skies of My children, and that speaks forth the death and the power that Satan has desired for you. But, again, I say it shall not stand, for I have spoken in times past that I would come and redeem all things. I have come in the glory of My kingdom until every enemy is under My feet and every yoke of depression is defeated. I speak forth now to you to rise up in the voice of victory. Rise up in a prophetic utterance and declare the victory in your realm, and curse the jackal's curse against you, and it shall not come. Refuse to allow the blood of destruction that comes through the voice of the enemy--those that Satan has now gathered against My true prophets--refuse to allow it to have any place in you. I say shake off the dust of defilement and refuse to surrender to the words of discouragement, but go forth in the power of My might, for I am leading you into victory, says the Lord God Almighty.


April 5, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: The Spirit of the Lord would say to you today, do not give up. Do not faint. Do not walk in weakness. Do not be discouraged. I would have you to not allow disappointment; I would have you to not allow grief; I would have you to not allow the spirit of heaviness to come into your life, for I am the living Lamb of God, and in Me and in My presence there are times of refreshing. Those times of refreshing are for the purpose of leading you and preparing you for glory, but I say to you the days of glory have come. Indeed, I will pour out My Spirit upon you with measures you have not yet tasted, and in the freshness of that living water, you shall go from strength to strength, and you shall go from victory to victory. Indeed, I am the Lamb of God and all things are under My care and in My purposes.


March 29, 1998--through Bill Burns: Awaken, awaken, children of Zion! For this is not the time for slumber. Have you not heard the sound of the trumpet? Have I not fulfilled My word? Indeed, I am fulfilling My word, for I am faithful. Did I not say that these, the days of glory, would come and are these not those days?
(those days are the days the Lord spoke of on December 21, 1997, through this prophetic word:)
This word comes, saith the Lord, to the Church. I say not to individuals, but to the corporate church, for many of you have missed what I have been up to and what I have been doing. Indeed, I have been walking through the midst of your circles and through the midst of your services, but you have remained unaware. Even though I have spoken in times past that with the beginning of the sound of the trumpet that I would begin to move in and out and among My people to prepare them for the journey to the end. I say unto you, it is not too late, for surely the day of the Lord cometh, and it is not too far off, but you must be prepared. The work that I have been doing has been misunderstood by many, for you must understand today that walking in the glory means to come and walk in the paths of righteousness that I have prepared for you and have been preparing for some time. But, I say to you today, the days of glory are about to unfold for you, so move now from the carnal to Spirit. Begin to live in the realm of My understanding, and begin to live in the range of My voice; begin to live within the range of My touch, for surely I am walking among you, and My purposes will be fulfilled as we move to the end of this age. I say the days of glory shall now begin to unfold because I am calling forth My obedient, those that I have purged and those that I have washed and those that I have prepared, and those that I have spoken to in the night visions, and the prophetic word shall now begin to come forth in the strength and the power of My word. Behold, the world itself shall now receive the sons of glory, the sons of God and their message.


March 22, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: Indeed I am now, says the Lord God Almighty, raising up intercessors that shall be mighty in the land, and they shall go forth carrying the banner of victory. They shall be given the voice of victory even before their mouths are open. I shall do those things and perform those things that they are saying, for they have given themselves to Me; they have locked themselves in with Me. I, the Lord God Almighty, will awaken you in the midnight hour, and when I put that person upon your heart, I say unto you speak! For surely, if I have awakened you, I shall perform the word, and it shall not fall to the ground. Every word that I speak shall bring forth victory and liberty. I am right now walking through the land. My eyes are covering the ground, and I am seeking out those who will now arise to this call of intercession, for surely I do nothing unless the saints pray. But, as I call you forth, as I move upon your spirit, step aside from yourself and become My voice in the land. When I am able to speak through you My perfect will, indeed those things shall come to pass.


March 22, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: It is written and is so that the whole of My creation is groaning. There is a travail within the land. There is a travail in the Spirit. There is a travail in the earth. There is a travail in the heavenlies, for all have desired this day to see the manifestation of the living sons of God that are coming forth for such a time as this. If you will remember, and if you think back for a moment to a word of prophecy that came three years ago. I said in this three-year period of time I would manifest Myself in an incredible way--ways in which you may not be able to receive; even which you may not be able to understand. I say unto you this is that day. For I have not only spoken My word; I have performed My word. I am now, even in this moment, lifting up the hearts of the precious saints of God that are determined to serve Me with the fullness of their hearts. There is no guile in their voices; there is no deception in their lives; there is but a hungering and thirsting after My word. There is a hungering and thirsting after righteousness that exists within My kingdom, and I say unto you today, the sons of glory will manifest themselves in this the year 1998. For, these are the days of a new beginning, a new refuge is being built in the realm of the spirit for those saints who are having right now an incredible desire, a violent faith to crowd into the kingdom which I have prepared for them, not upon the earth, but in the heavenly places where their Master's voice comes forth with the piercing of lightning that comes through the veil and shines upon their countenance. This is the day of the sons of glory. Arise, saints of God, and perform the words that I shall give you. Arise, saints of God, and come forth in majesty. For it is time; I say again, it is time for you to arise and hear My voice.


March 19, 1998--Scott Wilke vision: In the first round of praise and worship, the Lord just showed me a vision of Monarch butterfly, which to me meant transfiguration.
Bill Burns: God is transfiguring His church, from caterpillars to butterflies. Monarch means we are being changed into the image of the King!


March 13, 1998--through Bill Burns: The lightning of My power is now coming as flashing arrows to strike the earth, to revive My people, for it is now time for the Sons of Thunder to arise and strike a death blow to Satan's kingdom.
Psalm 81:7, "You called in trouble, and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder."
Psalm 77:18, "The voice of your thunder was in the whirlwind; the lightnings lit up the world; the earth trembled, and shook."


This morning as I was outside praying, I was reminded of a vision that a prophet of God (Steve Morris) had. In his vision concerning the power of God being spread through the USA, he saw a five-pointed star. In Acts 2:19 God says, "I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth below." As I was thinking about the meaning of this five-pointed star, I looked up into the blue of a Colorado sky. I saw two jet planes, one coming from the west and one coming from the east. As they crossed each others path, the Spirit of the Lord said, "Just as these planes are moving at a high rate of speed, so will I quickly restore the five-fold ministry in My church, and I will join them together for My purposes and My strategies--from east to west and from north to south. I will now do this." At that point, another plane came from behind me going south to north, and the vapor trails of the first and second planes and now the third plane formed a giant cross in the sky. Immediately, two more planes came into view. This all occurred very rapidly, and all five planes were in view at once.

We live in a remote area in the northwest Colorado mountains, and this many planes at once in the sky was most uncommon. Moments later, two more planes came into view. They were flying together, not far apart, and going the same direction, and the Spirit of the Lord said, "These two planes represent the restoration of the anointing of the apostles and prophets which shall bring prophetic power to My church."

There were now a total of seven planes in the sky. The number seven represents the power of a complete ministry. As I turned to walk away, the eighth plane came into view, and the Spirit of the Lord said, "This is a new day for My people, for with the restoration of My holy remnant will come apostolic power and the voice of thunder shall be heard throughout the land, and the lightnings shall fall. Just as it is in the natural world, the lightning is first seen before the thunder is heard. Pray that your spiritual eyes may be opened, and as soon as you perceive My lightning bolts, open your mouths, you Sons of Thunder."

March 12, 1998--through Stephen W. Morris (swmorris@herald.infi.net),
A Vision re Your Ministry:

NOTE: Even though this word was given to our ministry, we believe is applies to the corporate, remnant Church:

Vision/Revelation:
I saw very tall mountain peaks, covered with sun and snow but with black shadows at the extreme edges. Then my view shifted downward and I saw a green, lush valley. The valley was enclosed with a dark brownish, rust colored, wooden fence on each side. The fence was square, not round. In the center of the valley was a structure. It had a peaked, tan-colored roof. I could not determine the color of the building itself. Then I saw a single, lone cow.

Interpretation:
The tall mountain peaks, bathed with sunshine and covered with snow represent purity, revelation and the continuing presence of the sun of righteousness. The valley indicates the place where we have to live for oxygen, temperature, elevation, etc. The green lushness speaks of newness, life and growth. The wooden fence with four sides and a dark brownish color speaks of humanity enclosing, or containing, in the natural the structure and grass. The peak on the structure speaks of a cathedral, or place where God is worshipped. The tan color indicates that because of the worship, the humanity has been greatly cleansed and purified of its strong human influence (indicated by the dark brown, rust colored fence.) The lone cow is very significant as indicated by the uses of the word "cow" found in scripture as listed in Strong's concordance. (Note: there are no 3's [trinity], 6's [mankind] or 9's [finality] in Luke 23:44-46; John 19:28-30; Matthew 27:45-50; Mark 15:33-37 all speaking of the 9th hour when Jesus proclaimed "It is finished!") In these scriptural references, i.e., it is not the Godhead's final dealings with man.

Leviticus 22:27-28 This indicates that those born of the Spirit through your ministry shall remain seven days (earthly perfecting) with you and on the eighth day (new start) shall be accepted for an offering made by fire (baptism of fire) to the Lord.

Numbers 18:17-18 The firstlings of your ministry belong to God and are holy. They are freely given to God, the (life) blood of them and their fat (anointing) for an offering as a sweet savour (odor) to God. All you keep is the memory of them and their praise of God (wave breast) and their responsibility (right shoulder) to God.

Job 21:10 You will have no miscarriages in your ministry. That is not to say that you won't have some that leave prematurely and/or out of the will of God.

Isaiah 7:10-25 I believe the key here is verses 14 and 15. Immanuel shall eat butter and honey, when he knows to refuse the evil and choose the good. And then verses 21 and 22 indicate that when there is want in the land, because of the judgment of God, you will have only a young milk cow (God's provision) and two sheep (a congregation in unity) but because of the abundance of their combined milk you will eat butter and honey because your ministry knows to refuse the evil and choose the good. This while the land is cursed (briers and thorns). There really is a lot more in this passage, but you will recognize it.

Isaiah chapter 11 This speaks of a time when the cow and the bear shall feed side by side (verse 7) when your ministry is accepted by the remnant. Lots more here also.

Amos chapter 4 This, I believe, speaks of the result of the oppression of women in ministry. Because of unfair treatment (oppression) many will go out through the breaches and Israel (the church) will suffer because of it.

Ezekiel 4:12-15 Even though the church may eat defiled food (perverted doctrine) caused by their own human excrement (compromised biblical theology), the prophetic people (remnant) will not.

Application:
Continue in purity, revelation and the presence of the sun of righteousness so that the forces of evil and sin cannot stand in their presence. Continue to provide a human atmosphere conducive to the green lushness that speaks of newness, life and growth. The praise of God lifted to the mountain tops and the heavenlies will cleanse and purify the flesh of human influece and enable the human spirit to be joined to the Spirit of God without admixture of the impurities of human flesh. Great will be the manifestation of the Holy Spirit of God in pure vessels. I feel that I don't need to labor the point here. Saints will be perfected (earthly perfection) and the firstlings will be released into their own ministry. There will be no unresponsible or unrespon-sive ministers released through your ministry. In times of want in the land, God will provide. Your ministry will eventually be recognized and accepted by the remnant. You will liberate women into ministry and they will bless the body of Christ. And there will be no perverted doctrine issue forth from your ministry. There really is a whole lot more to be found in these scriptures. However, you will know that.


March 8, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: The Spirit of the Lord says that some have said that in the days of old that the fire fell, and some have said in those days it thundered. But, I say unto you that it is about to thunder again. It is about to thunder again! Arise, you sons of thunder, and call down the fire. Is not the thunder the evidence of the lightnings of God coming to destroy the powers of darkness? Rise up, you sons of the prophets. War not against the flesh of man, but thunder against the principalities, for these are the days of My power. Strike the enemy with the lightning of God. Strike the doorposts. Strike the ground. Strike the rivers. Arise, oh saints of God. Even as the message that I have given you this morning is a message of victory and a message of encouragement, it is My intention to raise up a holy people who march in their ranks, who are marching in strength, who are marching in victory, who are carrying the banner forth in the camp of the Living God to destroy all the works of the enemy. It shall be so, for it is written that the gates of hell will not prevail against My church, but the enemy shall fall before My rising army. So, I say unto you today, you sons of thunder, arise and let the lightnings of God come through your voice and come through your hands, and walk forth over an evil generation. Proclaim the truth for I, the Mighty God, have come in this hour to right all things so that righteousness will prevail in the earth.


March 6, 1998--through Bill Burns--Prophecy Concerning the Death of Sir Lionel Luckhoo: The Spirit of the Lord says, "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. (Psalm 116:5) And, My servant's death is also being given as a sign of the changing of the guard." In the spiritual realm of God's Kingdom, I can hear the sound of marching. I can hear the sounds of sabers being drawn. I hear the sound of the Master's voice, "It is time for the changing of the guard; it is time for the young lions to take their places in My command."
(Note: Click on What's Up--Item 3--from our Home Page for a prophetic word given in April 1995 in the presence of Sir Lionel Luckhoo concerning revival--also the sign of judgment to come to the house of the Lord.)


March 3, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: THE MASTER'S INSTRUCTION TO HIS PROPHETS
Watchmen of God, rejoice! For I, the Lord of Hosts, have now come to unveil the mystery of victory which My prophets, both my menservants and handmaidens, have yearned for. He who has ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Church, for truly I say to you only those who have been called shall be able to receive the instruction that I am now bringing forth, for most will consider it foolishness.

But, to you who have already heard the voice of My Spirit, to those who have been held in waiting for such a time as this, to you who truly are My disciples, it is given to know and understand that this is the hour in which I will restore to My church the power of the prophet. You are already aware that I am restoring the voice of My prophets to this generation, for I shall have in the land a prophetic people after the order of Elijah. This must be so because the scriptures cannot be broken, for I have declared that I will send you Elijah before the coming of the Dreadful Day (Day of Judgment) of the Lord.

To you it is given to know the mystery of power, to you is given the hidden manna now revealed to My servants, the prophets. Herein is wisdom--STRIKE THE WATERS! My mantle of authority is not only for the wearing of the prophet as he prophesies to the dead bones (Ezekiel 37). The mantle of authority is not only for the wearing of the prophet as he speaks warnings of the judgment to come (Ezekiel 33). The mantle is also to be taken from the shoulder and neck (representing the voice) rolled up in the hand to become the sword of the Spirit with which to strike the waters of these lands which the enemy dwells in. Listen, My prophets, the enemy has established strongholds in the waters of this world that hold the people in bondage, and you must strike the waters, for I have given you power over the waters (Revelation 11:6). Are these not the days of the sounding of the seventh angel (Revelation 10:7), and is this not the unsealing of the mystery of the seven thunders? For it is written, "Release the four angels who are bound in the great river Euphrates." (Revelation 9:14) Again, I say strike the waters as Elijah did, and the powers of darkness shall be broken, and the captives shall go free, for this is the purpose for which I have come--to destroy the works of the devil--to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.

(Note: If your ears have heard, and you desire a complete revelation of this word, go to our Home Page and click on What's Up and read Item 2.)


March 1, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: The Lord says, I am preparing you for the days that are ahead, and you cannot experience those days as long as you are bound. I have come to set every captive free and to liberate My people because it must be now that they rise up in the spirit of sonship. For it is in the spirit of sonship that My anointing flows, and it is when the anointing flows that the yoke is broken, that every one of those demon powers that comes against you is taken captive by the Lord who is the Captain of the Hosts. The Lord says, be free right now. Walk in freedom. You are not victims; you are conquerors. The Lord of Hosts would ask you a question today. What would happen if My people would set themselves to fight for a twelve-hour period of time? For was it not in the days of Joshua when I caused the sun to stand still so that every enemy could be defeated? My church is not yet warring in the realm of expectation. They are warring only for short periods of time--a skirmish here, a skirmish there. But, I say unto you today, if you will set your face like flint against the enemy; if you will take up the sword of the Spirit of Almighty God, the word of your testimony shall be that Satan is under your feet. You shall destroy the enemy. I say pursue. I say pursue! Don't strike a blow and get relief, but pursue until you have the victory, for I am the Lord of victory, and it is My privilege to bring you victory this day if you will but fight the good fight of faith.


February 27, 1998-- through Connie Chamberlain to the Church: It is not some mysterious thing for Me to speak to you and instruct you by My Spirit. Your only requirement is to still your soul and then to listen. I have been testing you and trying you by fire once again. And when it is said and done, you will come forth as gold. And when your own strength has failed you, you will stand and be upheld by My grace alone. Everything you ecounter--every attack, every hard place--is by My hand. And when you emerge on the other side of it, you will know Me as one knows his dearest friend, and you will never doubt My faithfulness again. I am bringing you into a new level of trusting Me. And with the greater degree of clarity with which you will hear My voice, the more your obedience is required. Rest assured that I, the Lord Almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth, have called you to be My witness. Dispel every lie of inability and unworthiness because I have filled you with My Spirit, and My divine power has given to you all that you need for life and godliness. Do not resent the trials, but rejoice because you are counted worthy to suffer for My name's sake. After you have suffered a little while, I Myself will restore you, perfect you, strengthen you, and settle you.

February 22, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: (This word of the Lord came to me as I woke up this morning at 5:30 a.m.)
The judgment of the Chief Pharisees is about to come upon the earth. The finger of God is once again writing upon the wall as He did in Daniel's day. (Daniel 5:24-28) This time He is writing upon the walls of religious institutions, for it must be that before His judgment comes upon the world systems, His judgment must begin at His own house. Woe unto you, Scribes, Pharisee, hypocrites--God has numbered your kingdom and finished it. You have been weighed in the balances and found wanting, and your kingdoms will now fall. For you have mocked the vessels of My temple (My true servants), and you have said in your hearts, "Crucify them!" You have shut My vessels out of My house, but it is written that My house shall be a house of prayer. I say not only a house of prayer, but a house where prophetic preaching and prophetic words and prophetic gifts are in demonstration, even as it was in Christ's day. For you have said--we must keep our positions of stature. You have built for yourselves monuments of self-idolatry. But, have you not read that the stone that is made without human hands (Jesus) will crush your feet of clay and iron? Your idols will fall, for you are not pillars in My temple. You have only a form of religion, but you have denied those vessels of gold that I have sent to bring My power to My people. You have loved the best seats, and you have sought after the praise of men instead of Me. You have stoned My prophets with your words of criticism and your slander. You have held your councils of deception behind closed doors and made your judgments against My anointed. But--Now! My judgment will come against you, for My court shall be seated, and your dominion shall be taken away, and your kingdoms shall be given to My servants, the saints of the Most High. Suddenly, in one day, it shall come for I have given you time to repent of your sorceries, but you would not. For you have said, we are at peace with God, and our position is one of safety. But I say, Now! Suddenly, sudden destruction shall come upon you.


February 15, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: The Spirit of the Lord says, I am doing a new thing in the land, and even now, even as you are sitting where you are sitting, I am doing new things. I am bringing forth alliances in the realm of the Spirit that will bring the manifestations of My people together, the witnesses and the true prophets who will gather under My banner and have My instruction and know the way of the Lord. I am doing new things even in the lives of those of you who sit under this word today, for there are things coming down, things being prepared for you that are going to come forth in the future, in the not too far distance, that will change your life and orchestrate a position (and I want you to hear this word), a position for end-time, for end-time revelation, for end-time stationing, for end-time association that will bring forth the alliance of My true church and bring forth My church into the battle ground and the arena that will bring forth the victory.


February 8, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church:
God is raising up a righteous people, an end-time people, and He says to you this morning--I am raising you up as a church who will worship in Spirit and in truth, for indeed I have spoken in My Word that seducing spirits would come into the land. They have been poured out in abundance, and unfortunately, many of My people have embraced them. As I speak now again today, I speak against the daughter of Babylon, for she has made herself a queen to sit in heavenly places, and her cup is full of the abominations against the true witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ. But, I say to you that you will be the contending power against her voice in this land, for indeed, you have been called to walk in holiness and righteousness, and I have put My words in your mouth, and the Spirit of truth abides in you. I say, do not sit down, do not shut up, and do not take a back seat, for indeed who will bring My message into the land today if My warriors will not arise and contend? I have spoken about contending for the truth, contending for the faith, through those who have written in My Word, but I put it in your heart today that I have chosen you, the end-time army, the Gideons that will rise up and walk in the fullness according to the prophecies of Joel that spoke about the end times and about My army who will march through the cities and run upon the walls. That generation is now this generation called forth to war in the realm of the spirit and to pull down the strongholds of apostasy and to break asunder the gates of brass and of steel that have been formed against My people, to loose every prisoner and let every captive go, for I have spoken in My Word that the gates of hell would not prevail against My church. I am the Lord of Glory, and all the world and the inhabitants thereof and the spirits thereof are living in subjection to My word, and it shall be from this moment forth that Babylon (I declare today through the mouths of My prophets and those that are willing to listen), you are defeated! And I say again, My people, come out of her. Come out of her, and do not share in the plagues that come. Indeed, that church is on the earth today marching in unison, but they are marching to the sound of a different drummer. But, I have called you to live in righteousness and truth. Stay in truth and stay in Spirit, and I will be with you to the end.


January 16, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: Many of the rest of you are coming into a newness in your walk, a newness in understanding, and new opportunities, for this is the year of blessing. It is the year of Jubilee. But, it is also the year of a spiritual attack, and I must reveal this to you because even as I have spoken through My prophets and through My servants that the church is now preceding Israel, as a nation, if you will go to the book of Ezekiel, and if you will read in the 37th and 38th chapters about the war, this war has to do with physical Israel, but the church is fighting this war spiritually in this day, and the spirits that come are the spirits of Gog and the spirits of Magog against you in intense number and intense magnitude. This curse of Magog will carry through to the end, but I say to you, if you have read My Book, I have brought forth a victory! Every enemy shall be defeated. Do not allow fear to come into your lives; do not allow fear to permeate you because do I not from the fire of heaven come down upon the earth to destroy that army on the hills and on the lands of My people? And, it shall be so in the church, but you must fight against these curses because they will come, and the spirits of invasion will come upon you. Do not be slack, and do not give in to weakness. Do not give in to the number of troops against you, for you shall indeed be victorious, and you shall conquer, for you are My battle axes, and the war belongs to Me, saith the Lord, and I will preserve you and keep you in every avenue, in every direction that you go. And, the ways that you come in and the ways that you go out the devil must flee also. Even as I have given a prophetic sign yesterday as I brought forth My servants from seven directions,and the devil indeed had to flee in seven directions, for where My Spirit comes in, the enemy must go out. They cannot exist together, for light and darkness cannot coexist, saith God. I am the light of the world, and I am the Master of the world. Understand today that everything is under prophetic influence now, and I am turning up the speed of the hour hands upon the clock for the final generation, and even so it will go to the end of time. That end is not far away, so you must be prepared, for I am coming quickly, and I am coming for a church without spot or wrinkle. So, I would say unto you today, wash yourselves and walk in the newness of the platforms that I have given you. Look up, for your redemption draws nigh, for I am the Lord of Glory and the Lord of Redemption. Have I not saved you and purged you? I will bring you through, for all purposes are in My hands.


January 11, 1998--through Bill Burns to the Church: The Spirit of the Lord would say to you today, I set before you life and death. I set before you blessings or cursings. But, if you will choose My way, and if you will choose to walk according to the Spirit of righteousness, it shall be according to the words that I have spoken through the prophets that indeed I would bestow upon you the blessings that would carry you to the end of the age. And, those blessings shall come in the form of spiritual blessings, for have I not said to you that you are seated in the heavenly places with My beloved Son, and has He not given you the Spirit of power who has brought into your life the gifts and the fruit of His blessing? And, it shall be from this day forth that the overflowing bounty of My blessing shall be upon My people, for through the waters they have come, but they do not yet understand the magnitude and the velocity with which that power shall come. But, you must be in accordance with the word you received today. (The word preached had to do with sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow God will do great and mighty things.) Therefore, sanctify yourselves and be ready, as I am about to do marvelous things among My people, and I will indeed manifest Myself to many--those who are desiring with hungry hearts, those who are seeking, those who are yearning and those who are coming forth in the power and presence of the love that exists within their hearts and reaching out to Me with all that is within them. And, when I become your desire, I come to fellowship with you. I will not leave you nor will I forsake you. For I am with you until the end of the age.
